David Beckham condemns criticism aimed at England forward Raheem Sterling

David Beckham condemns criticism aimed at England forward Raheem Sterling

Every player is in the form of their life: Jordan Pickford is Gordon Banks, Harry Maguire is Bobby Moore, Harry Kane is Geoff Hurst.

He said on Twitter: "Today, I want to thank all that have and continue to support England as a team, this has helped us achieve what can only be described as a dream!"

"He had a little bit of criticism but he performed well".

The reason is his movement and speed, something which is crucial to any side's offence.

Dalic blamed Croatia's opponents for smothering the creative talents of Luka Modric and said he expected a more open match in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

The attacker was also a subject to social media abuse during the halftime break in the Three Lions' World Cup quarter-final victory over Sweden.

Sterling missed an excellent chance to score against Sweden.

More specifically, he's anxious about Raheem Sterling.

Sterling has yet to score at this World Cup and a BBC fans' poll has rated him the worst England player in each of the four games in which he has appeared.

Jones, who made just nine worldwide appearances for Wales, believes Sterling relies to heavily on his speed and slammed his finishing so far this World Cup.

For decades, England managers have been plagued by the dilemma of fitting in the star English players into a single tactical system and still function at an optimal level.

Southgate would rather be bringing on proven goalscorers such as Vardy and Rashford when England are in crisis, as opposed to bringing on Sterling who, as good as he has been, is still short of confidence in front of goal. "Of course you can take positives out of everything, but you won't be entirely happy if you don't win it", Sterling had opined - his style of dry martini may not suit the English media's tastebuds accustomed to gin, but Raheem Sterling's virtuosity on the ball is necessary for England to pour a celebratory cocktail in the remaining games.

For all you cricket fans, Raheem Sterling is very similar to Ashley Giles in the 2005 Ashes.

England went on to win the Ashes that summer.

"Against a better team like Croatia, it is important Raheem makes the right decisions".
