Neville slams ‘absolutely disgusting’ criticism of Sterling by England fans


Everyone is talking about Raheem Sterling right now.

Sterling's pace and willingness to run at opposition defences has been a major part of England's attacking threat, but his timid finishing has frustrated some fans.

However, the England manager is hesitant to change what has been a winning formula in Russian Federation and Sterling is odds on to retain his place in the lineup when the Three Lions take on Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday night.

And ahead of England's semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday evening, Jones has questioned whether Sterling should keep his place in Southgate's starting lineup ahead of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

Sterling has yet to score in Russian Federation, but has made plenty of menacing runs in the opponents' half and brought others into play. Should they win, they'll return to the Luzhniki on Sunday to face Belgium or France in the World Cup final.

"But he has become anxious about getting on the scoresheet".

He also said Croatia took great heart from the form of "the World Cup's best central midfield pairing" Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, with the latter playing "the best football of his career".

"We have seen the way the country has got behind us and the happiness we are giving out and it is fantastic to be a part of".

And this could benefit England if Sterling makes the most of the space presented to him. He's quick, he's dynamic and hopefully the goals are going to come now in these two last important games'.

Yet three in 43 and an appearance in the World Cup final?
