I have to admit I have changed my mind on him in this England side. I wouldn't want him at my club because he is first an athlete and second a footballer; he is not technical at all. That was why I wanted him dropped for Rashford. He also has issues but he is a better footballer than Sterling. Sterling certainly brings chaos to opposition defences and we are set in a pattern of play so I think we cannot change it for now. There is also the chance he will score and the team will likely mob him to show support which may lift the team even higher. If things start to go wrong and Rashford takes his chance so be it but for Wednesday we should start Sterling imo - a week ago I simply wouldn't have countenanced saying that.
agree - he's played every minute bar the belgium game, he's got the shirt, let him keep it and prove everybody wrong. i don't think rashford is ready to step up in a world cup semi so sterling is the best we've got, even though i think he is sh*t, and i agree with you re: he is a athlete first, he should be a runner, as he is an absolutely horrendous footballer technically

Poor finishing gets shown up against the mug/defensive sides but weaknesses in defence and midfield don't. Why is Henderson the one playing long passes anyway? Play it out from the back 10 yards and then hoof it?
Henderson has three moves, sideways, backwards and lash it towards the corner flag. Klopp doesn't care as he likes to bypass midfield anyhow. As for Sterling, imagine he was one game away from an obedience
