Raheem Sterling back with England and back in contention for World Cup date with France
The 28-year-old forward did not feature in Sunday’s last-16 win against Senegal due to concern over his family’s wellbeing following an incident at his home in Surrey.
The governing body has now confirmed the Chelsea forward is heading back to link up with Gareth Southgate’s squad in Qatar.
An FA statement on Thursday read: “Raheem Sterling will return to England’s World Cup base in Qatar.
“The Chelsea forward temporarily left to attend to a family matter but is now expected to rejoin the squad in Al Wakrah on Friday (9 December) ahead of the quarter-final with France.”
