In England’s 4-0 triumph over Hungary on Thursday night, Raheem Sterling scored the first goal before paying respect to Twitch streamer Steffie Gregg, who died last week at Covid-19.
Raheem Sterling dedicated his goal against Hungary on Thursday night to a Twitch streamer who died this week after Covid-19 problems.
Before removing his shirt to unveil a heartfelt tribute to the late Steffie Gregg, Sterling broke the deadlock in the Three Lions’ 4-0 World Cup qualifying triumph.
Gregg, a social media influencer and well-known figure in Jamaica, died on Tuesday from Covid-19 at the age of 26.
He was apparently close friends with Sterling, who after scoring against Hungary removed his shirt to reveal the words “Love you forever Steffie Gregg.”
Gregg was the daughter of former race car driver Gary Gregg and sister of current racer Kyle Gregg, a renowned Twitch streamer.
Many people, including Sterling, were startled and devastated by her death this week.
On Thursday, the Man City ace was arrested in Hungary for exposing the Gregg homage.
