Roy Hodgson supported Raheem Sterling to become a key England player in Euro despite his warm Man City form.
Hodgson is a big fan of Raheem Sterling
Sterling extended his recent City jersey goal scoring drought to 11 games after playing another blank in their 2-0 win at Crystal Palace over the weekend. The 26-year-old is no longer guaranteed a spot in Guardiola’s starting XI, but Roy Hodgson, the man who handed the winger his England debut in 2012, thinks he still has a lot to offer internationally. Former England boss, who currently heads Palace, told reporters after Saturday’s Premier League clash that he is a huge fan of Raheem Sterling and thinks he is a great player. This is a great position to be in if you are Guardiola that you believe you have other players you would rather use Sterling, but he is pretty confident about England, he will still be an important player and an important cog in the wheel because he has so many possibilities.
The set of skills that he has, and the ability to beat people, get into assisting positions and score and set up chances, they are hard to find, and Raheem Sterling received great quality, in his words, and one he always admired in him, he is not a player. who stays there and waits for the ball to come to him. He also said that he makes sure he goes looking for him, and when he loses it, he gets it back and plays an important role in the team’s defensive work. These are the things they, as coaches, expect from their players these days, but it’s not always easy to get.
Attacking line options
Gareth Southgate is blessed with many quality attacking options heading for the European Championship due to kick off on June 11th. Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Jesse Lingard and Phil Foden will be considered alongside Sterling, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Harry Kane, Ollie Watkins and Mason Greenwood will also vie for forward berths.
