There's a crowdfunder to bring Raheem Sterling back from Euro 2016


Could a crowdfunder by England fans to bring Raheem Sterling home be the motivation he needs to deliver a half-decent cross?

The £50 million man is being held up as the poster boy for England's lacklustre first-half performance against Wales, with his end product once again under the microscope.

Sterling's performance against Russia in England's first game wasn't great, but it was definitely better than his performance in their second game.

Some England fans have had enough, with Aaron Bamford, the petition's founder, saying: "We'll bring the lad home and then we can all stop cringing every time a gust of wind knocks him over."

It might be a little unfair on the 21-year-old, who has been positive with his runs during the Euros, but it could be better for everyone if Roy Hodgson leaves him out of his XI for the game against Slovakia.
