Raheem Sterling has withdrawn from the England squad with a ‘hamstring problem’, but it is thought to be ‘precautionary’.

Gareth Southgate’s side called in Reece James of Chelsea as a replacement.

Honestly, who asked for these friendlies? The players need rest and we are, in case you forgot, UNDER A WORLDWIDE HEALTH PANDEMIC!

Anyways, Sterling needs a break and now he will get one. Good for him.
