Sterling leaves W’Cup after robbers attack family in UK
England forward Raheem Sterling is reportedly leaving the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after armed intruders broke into his home in the UK while his family were inside.
Sterling, who had started two of the Three Lions’ three games at the World Cup, missed England’s 3-0 win over Senegal in the last 16.
According to Sky Sports, he was ruled out of the squad due to a “family matter” shortly before kick-off.
It was gathered that Sterling wanted to get home as soon as he was alerted to the break-in, having been very shaken and concerned for the wellbeing of his children.
