Raheem Sterling finally showed why Manchester City paid 49 million pounds ($75.55 million) for his services when he inspired them to a 3-1 win over Sevilla and a place in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday.

He got the opening goal after eight minutes to become, at 20 years and 330 days, their youngest scorer in the five seasons they have been in the competition, had a hand in the second, and terrorised Sevilla with mesmerizing runs, feints and passes.

It was a superb performance by the former Liverpool forward that went a long way to justifying City's huge outlay on the young England international in the close season.

Sterling was typically low-key and guarded, as he usually is when talking to the media afterwards, giving the impression he would rather be anywhere else than in front of the cameras.
