David Beckham condemns criticism aimed at England forward Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling England

However, the England manager is hesitant to change what has been a winning formula in Russian Federation and Sterling is odds on to retain his place in the lineup when the Three Lions take on Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday night.

Despite Sterling's fine display on Saturday, he has come under fire in some quarters for an inability to finish chances in an England shirt but clubmate Kyle Walker defended the 23-year-old.

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has identified Raheem Sterling as England's danger man in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

Former Manchester United and England defender Neville feels that the criticism is unwarranted and believes that some of the comments he saw on Twitter at half-time during England's 2-0 win over Sweden were completely uncalled for. "He's had a fantastic tournament so far and hopefully he can continue to have one in the next week".

"They play very direct football, dangerous, fast, and they are really good at setpieces, and dangerous at corner kicks".

"The way Raheem's handled everything from when we met up until now has been incredible", said Dier.

Police and bomb disposal officials collected evidence from the site of the blast and initiated an investigation into the incident. Haroon was son of Bashir Ahmed Bilour, a senior ANP leader who was also martyred in a suicide blast in Peshawar in 2012.

Midfielder Eric Dier says that England and Tottenham Hotspur teammate Kieran Trippier deserves the recognition that he has received for his recent performances.

'People think he's weak but I've seen countless players ride his back because he's that strong.

He would not give any details of how serious those injuries are, saying only that reaching the last four was "a new motivation" for his squad, but did say he might have to make changes to his line-up as now was not the time to take any risks with players who are not 100 per cent.

"We as a country are united and behind the team".

"Our league is not so strong but if we had England's money, who knows where we would be".
