England manager Gareth Southgate says he will have no hesitation over selecting forward Raheem sterling for Sunday’s euro 2020 qualifier in Kosovo.
Sterling was dropped for Thursday’s game against Montenegro at Wembley after a clash with team-mate Joe Gomez.
Southgate said he’s with the group, and that’s the most important thing. Adding that he’s a massive part of England’s plans.
England need just a point against Montenegro today to qualify for euro 2020 in their 1,000th match.
Manchester city’s Sterling will be available again for Sunday’s trip to Kosovo, their final qualifier for next summer’s tournament – after missing his first international since September 2018.
Asked if he would have any hesitation about bringing the forward back into the starting xi in Pristina, Southgate said: “none, none whatsoever. We took the decision and drew a line under everything.”
