Raheem Sterling was obliged to leave England’s World Cup match against Senegal in the round of 16 and return to the UK. An official statement made after the match said Sterling’s departure was due to family obligations.
However, numerous sources now support the claim that Sterling’s decision to depart from the Three Lions’ camp in Qatar was influenced by an armed robbery that occurred at his house in the UK the evening before England’s round of 16 match against Senegal.
The Chelsea forward was reportedly “shaken” by the burglary that occurred on Saturday night when some of his family members were present, according to people close to him, who spoke to the Telegraph.
