    Raheem Sterling - You are awful

    At this stage, I can honestly say that he would not score even with no opposition players or goalie.

    Just 2 goals from 41 appearances is just dreadful. Am sure someone can pull up stats to show the number of shots he has had but it's not required.

    I'd have liked Rashford to get more opportunities then him in this tournament but it wasn't to be.


    Ah, so this is what it feels like

    Sterling has everything you want in an attacker except a good finish.

    He just doesn't have a good shot on him - I remember how he'd fluff simple chances when he used to play for Liverpool.

    I never rated him as a finisher to be honest, seems to miss chances in the most important games.

    If I could describe how I feel about Sterling all you'd see is *'s cos he is just the worst player to put on an England shirt.

    He's a winger and has mostly played RW for Man City. He can't play striker cos he has zero presence up top and only runs in behind, zero movement. Rubbish finishing and the hate I have for him is visceral.

    BUT COME ON ENGLAND SEMI FINAL LETS GOOOO

    His finishing is poor. But the rest of his play is really good. Pep has improved him a lot.

    He had one of his better games today I thought, really stretched the Swedish defenders with his pace and he was getting a lot of attention sticking to him which allowed more space to open up on the wings for Young and Trippier. But it is somewhat difficult to see past that missed chance at the end of the first half, he received perfect service from Henderson for that one and should have buried the game with it to be honest. I am not sure that he has the mental strength to deliver the goods in a semi-final or a final.

    I thought he was decent today and did a lot of unselfish running which helped his team-mates and created space for them.

    I feel he cops a lot of unfair stick at times.

    Rashford should have been brought on earlier today.

    But Sterling didnt have a bad game. He put in good effort and worked well with the midfield.

    Should have scored a goal though. The game should have been over much earlier had Sterling slotted the ones most forwards would.

    If Delle Ali didnt get the second goal and Sweden equalised, all that good effort by Sterling would have gone to waste because he blew 2 sitters.

    The position he plays in for England, he should be scoring often, i get it he works well and makes decent runs, but when playing in that position you have too take the chances you get.

    Yeah, I agree with you. But I am not convinced that we start with Rashford. But on situations like today, Rashford could have been brought on early in the 2nd half. For a while when Sweden were pressing, changing things up a bit might have helped.

    He wreaked havoc through the Swedish defence today and forced a corner.

    He's just got a mental problem finishing at this level. He's overthinking it.

    He has pace to burn but stops then looks for a pass when he should keep running. This causes him to run in to traffic so the chance is gone. Get to the byline then cross it or just go yourself. No need to stop when most of opposing players are behind you.

    Rashford has been pretty rubbish too in the chances Southgate has given him in this campaign, he didn't take the opportunity to replace Sterling.

    There were plenty of chances for him to pass the ball to others in the box but he was very selfish and kept fluffing chances when he knows deep down he is a rubbish finisher, I think if he could stop being selfish we could utilize him better but old habbits die hard and he use to play for Scumpool @KingKhanWC

    He's done more than Sterling has this whole tournament. Yes he missed that 1 on 1 but so has Sterling vs Sweden. Sterling is an inferior striker to Rashford in so many aspects.

    REALLY???

    He has been given only 2 real chances this WC, first in a match that England didnt seem they wanted to win and second to take a penalty against Columbia that he slot away so cooly.

    Croatia fear England's Sterling in World Cup semi

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

    Sterling was a key part of the Manchester City side that won the Premier League last season but he has been less effective in England's charge to the last four for the first time since 1990.

    Despite some disappointing early performances, England coach Gareth Southgate has kept faith with the 23-year-old and his speed was a constant threat to Sweden's defence in England's 2-0 quarter-final win on Saturday.

    "I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and dangerous alongside Harry Kane," Dalic said in a press conference Sunday.

    "I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England's team) since they are in the semifinals, that says it all.

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

    England survived a penalty shootout against Colombia in the last 16 whereas Croatia emerged through extra-time and spot-kicks against Denmark before going through the same ordeal again against Russia in Saturday's quarterfinal.

    After such tight matches, it is easy to forget that Croatia produced a feast of attacking play to destroy Lionel Messi's Argentina 3-0 in the group phase.

    Dalic blamed Croatia's opponents for smothering the creative talents of Luka Modric and said he expected a more open match in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

    "Our last three games were different because we played teams with a defensive approach," he said.

    "But we are looking forward to a different style of game against England because they like to play attacking football."

    The semifinal also represents a financial mismatch between the riches of England's Premier League and Croatian football.

    "If we had England's money, who knows where we'd be in our country?" Dalic said.

    To be fair to him his performances in this tournament have been pretty decent but the poor finishing overshadows the good work, they should stop trying to get him a goal and Raheem needs to put the team first as well if the moment presents itself in a crunch situation.

    Sterling answered his critics in the last couple of games, including me. We really missed him when he went off, Croatia were really struggling against him in the first half.

    I specifically criticised his poor finishing and it was frustrating to see him miss many chances but beyond that he has been good
