Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster was one of those who called for England national team manager Gareth Southgate to include Manchester City star Raheem Sterling in the starting XI ahead of their Euro 2020 opener with Croatia in Group D and he has been able to repay the faith shown in him and others. Ben Foster called for Sterling to start the Croatia game on his YouTube channel.

Arsenal target Sterling has the ability to strike fear into opponents easily according to Ben Foster as he backed the Manchester City player to produce the goods at the tournament. Foster was proved right after Sterling scored the goal that won the game for England at the expense of the Croatians. The Manchester City attacker scored in the second half after receiving a wonderful pass from the impressive Leeds United player Kalvin Philips. Philips delivered a good pass and Sterling was able to apply the finishing touch to give the Three Lions the three points at stake and at the expense of the Croatians.

Manchester City are the Premier League champions but they are expected to make some signings and let a few of their players leave this summer. It has been reported that Sterling could be one of the players to leave with keen interest from Arsenal. The Gunners will definitely have to pay the big bucks if they want to sign the former Liverpool player with £49m quoted as the asking price.

For now, the Euro tournament is the focus for Sterling amidst talks about his Manchester City future. He has scored the only goal for England in the two games played. Sterling played the entire game against Scotland on Friday night ass England played out a goalless draw to stay in second place on the group standings behind leaders Czech Republic with four points from two matches.
