Armed intruders entered the home of Chelsea forward Raheem Sterling whilst he was away with England at the World Cup.
With England set to face Senegal in the round of 16 of the World Cup, Sterling wasn’t named in the squad, with Gareth Southgate confirming there was a family matter he had to deal with.
Now, Matt Law has confirmed the reasoning behind Sterling’s absence, and it’s a horrifying situation for the England international.
Raheem Sterling was the victim of a robbery at his home in London while in Qatar. He has decided to return to UK to check on the well being of his family but hopes to return to Qatar if the circumstances are right

The robbery took place on Saturday night, and Sterling has now returned to England to make sure his family are all okay.
It’s such an awful situation for Sterling who will have been absolutely devastated to miss the game against Senegal, but family always comes first.
Unfortunately, with the burglars knowing full well Sterling was away from his home at the World Cup, they saw the opportunity to raid his home.
Hopefully, his family are all safe and well and aren’t too shaken up by the situation. I’m sure we’ll find out more in a few days and it will be interesting to see if Sterling returns to Qatar.
