Ashley Williams, a BBC Sport commentator, discusses England passing up Chelsea star Raheem Sterling
Williams has observed that Sterling, who can play as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, has been performing well for Chelsea this year.
Sterling is a player who has performed admirably for England and can be relied upon to deliver for the Three Lions, the BBC Sport analyst has stated.
I’m shocked Raheem Sterling isn’t in the team, William exclaimed.
“When I consider it, I ask myself whether an international manager should choose guys he trusts over players who are performing well.
Raheem Sterling fits into each of the groups.
I’m unsure of his reasoning for choosing players who are out of form.
If you’re Raheem Sterling, you’re terribly disappointed, but you have to trust him.
Raheem Sterling’s omission has primarily benefited Chelsea.
According to our assessment, Raheem Sterling’s exclusion by England head coach Gareth Southgate from the most recent selection benefits Chelsea the most.
Sterling will now be able to practise at Chelsea and continue working with head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
The former Manchester City star, who makes £325,000 per week (Spotrac), wouldn’t be hurt while serving his country.
Chelsea currently has enough injury issues.
They don’t require an additional player to be yanked to the sidelines.
Chelsea’s Sterling has two goals this season in four Premier League games.
