Will Raheem Sterling play for England again at the World Cup?
Sterling returned to the UK and is now said to be now willing to return to Qatar to rejoin the England squad.
Raheem Sterling is reportedly considering a return to the England squad ahead of the World Cup quarter-final against France.
The Chelsea forward did not play in England’s last-16 win against Senegal due to concern over his family’s wellbeing after a break-in at his home in Surrey.
Sterling returned to the UK and is now said to be willing to return to Qatar to rejoin the England squad as long as he is assured of his family’s safety.
Sources close to the English forward had initially indicated armed intruders had broken into his home while his family was inside, but subsequent police statements said the occupants of the house had reported items missing after returning to the family home from an international trip.
Police said on Monday they were working to establish precisely when the break-in took place.
