Chelsea and England star Raheem Sterling will travel back to Qatar to join the three lions of England ahead of their quarter-final clash against France.
Raheem Sterling left the England squad in Qatar to ensure the safety of his family after his home in the UK was robbed.
Raheem Sterling was involved in two of England’s group-stage fixtures of the world cup against Iran and Wales; he was also on the score sheet in their 6-2 victory over Iran. However, he was absent in England’s round of 16 victory over African champions Senegal, which saw them progress to the quarter-finals of the world cup.
A statement released by the English FA on Thursday confirmed that Raheem Sterling would rejoin the squad in Al Wakrah ahead of the quarter-final fixture with France.
It will be one of England’s toughest tests in the world cup when they play against France on Friday. The 28 years Chelsea forward will be a major boost as he increases manager Gareth Southgate attacking options.
