Sterling, the quicksilver enigma in Englands lineup

GETTYRaheem Sterling starts for England in their World Cup quarter-final against Sweden

Raheem Sterling England

Goalless for England since October 2015, Raheem Sterling doesn't fit anybody's definition for a second striker, especially when England have the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Jamie Vardy in their squad - all of whom have contributed more goals than the Manchester City forward. Should they win, they'll return to the Luzhniki on Sunday to face Belgium or France in the World Cup final.

"Raheem's attitude is fantastic, his work ethic is fantastic as well". Power, positioning and precision - three traits seem to define any striker of calibre according to European sports media, but Sterling is neither of those and still offers much more than just those three traits - probably why the Englishman is often on the receiving end of relentless, jarring criticism.

'He has quality in possession, links the play, makes runs in behind and off the ball his work-rate is incredible.

"It's so clear to see if you were to watch back all our games up to now the importance he has to the team".

"I think there are a lot of similarities to the team of 96".

Dier took that defeat as hard as anyone and admits to viewing the unexpected success of recent weeks as redemption.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and unsafe alongside Harry Kane", Dalic said in a press conference Sunday.




"Our league is not so strong but if we had England's money, who knows where we would be".

More specifically, he's anxious about Raheem Sterling.

"We're really happy with where we're at but we believe we can continue this great journey".

Sterling's forceful running troubled Sweden during England's 2-0 win on Saturday, even if his erratic finishing let them off the hook on a couple of occasions.

"But we are looking forward to a different style of game against England because they like to play attacking football".

Real Madrid's former Spurs playmaker Luka Modric and Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic are two of their key men, and Dier is fully aware of their talents in midfield.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and risky alongside Harry Kane", said Dalic ahead of Wednesday's clash in Moscow.
