Sports: Sterling Out Of England Squad For Clash With Joe Gomez

Reports coming in states that Manchester City star, Raheem Sterling, would not be playing for England in their Euro 2020 qualifier match on Thursday against Montenegro due to the clash he had with Liverpool player, Joe Gomez, on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side suffered a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool and the emotions of the City players were at breaking point. Sterling, who could not box it up, became involved in a heated word exchange with Gomez.

They were still at loggerheads when they both arrived at St George's Park for their international duty.

Sterling lost it as he tried to grab Gomez's neck as the Liverpool player tried to shake his hand in the canteen.

This outburst led to the FA's decision of dropping Sterling from the match which is scheduled to hold on Thursday...

The FA can confirm Raheem Sterling will not be considered for Thursday's EURO 2020 qualifier against Montenegro as a result of a disturbance in a private team area at St George's Park today. He will remain with the squad.

The coach of the Three Lions also talked about the decision made by the Football Association...

We have taken the decision to not consider Raheem for the match against Montenegro on Thursday. One of the great challenges and strengths for us is that we've been able to separate club rivalries from the national team. Unfortunately, the emotions of yesterday's game were still raw. My feeling is that the right thing for the team is the action we have taken. Now that the decision has been made with the agreement of the entire squad, it's important that we support the players and focus on Thursday night.

After apologizing to Gomez and his England teammates, the 24-year-old took to Instagram to express himself...

We are in a sport where emotions run high and I am man enough to admit when emotions got the better of me,' he posted. Both Joe and I have had words and figured things out and moved on.
