Raheem Sterling is ready to return to Qatar to reunite with the Three Lions of England, who are preparing to play against the FIFA World Cup defending champions France on December 10, 2022.
Raheem Sterling pulled out of the World Cup squad After a burglary occurred in his home town of Surrey in the presence of his family while he was away before England defeated Senegal 3-0 in the round of 16.
The player is awaiting final assurances about his family’s safety before deciding whether to return for the World Cup.
The Chelsea winger has a large family, and the incident occurred in the presence of the children, who were traumatized by it.
Paige Milian, Sterling’s fiancé raised the alarm when the gang took the player’s properties.
The gang that attacked Sterling’s house thought his fiancée Paige and the couple’s sons, aged five and three, were with him in Qatar. It left the Sterling family deeply upset.
England manager Gareth Southgate, who granted him the leave away from Qatar, is in support of the player returning to the squad to boost his attacking options.
Sterling’s exit from the England team was a big shock to the players after Ben White departed from the squad for personal reasons that were not disclosed to the media.
Even if Raheem Sterling returns to the squad, Southgate is likely to start Marcus Rashford or Mason Mount against France.
The team has also offered support to the Chelsea player, and they pray he quickly recovers.
The police investigating the issue claimed that watches and jewelry worth 300,000 pounds were taken.
It has also been confirmed that the police have made two arrests; the suspects were held on suspicion of an attempted burglary last night in Oxshott, Surrey.
It was also reported that a helicopter and a dog unit were deployed following reports of such suspicious activity.
The police are investigating any possible link between the break-in at the Chelsea star’s home.
Although they have confirmed that the two arrested are not connected at this time, Raheem Sterling is said to be the fourth player to be hit by the same gang.
The last burglary that happened to an English player was when Reece James lost his Champions League gold medal to criminals.
