In the wake of Liverpool-Manchester City (3-1), Raheem Sterling had a clash with Joe Gomez on Monday at the rally of the national team of England. The City player is dismissed by the coach, Gareth Southgate.
The Premier League and its stakes ignite the English selection. England coach Gareth Southgate announced on Monday night that Raheem Sterling will be sidelined for the Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro on Thursday at Wembley (London). The Manchester City player pays a clash with Joe Gomez, Liverpool defender, at the rally on Monday.
According to the Daily Mail, Raheem Sterling tried to grab Joe Gomez by the neck at the canteen of St George's Park, the training center of England. Both players had to be separated by their teammates, shocked by the incident. Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez had already had a confrontation the day before, at Liverpool-Manchester City (3-1), in the final minutes of the Premier League shock.
With their win, the Reds pushed the Citizens to nine points and may have taken a decisive advantage in the title race. Raheem Sterling will not play against Montenegro, while the English can qualify for the Euro, but will stay with the selection. He could play the second game of this international truce, potentially without stake, in Kosovo on Monday.
"Unfortunately, the emotions of the match were still alive"
"We made the decision not to select Raheem for the match against Montenegro on Thursday," said Gareth Southgate in a statement, "one of the greatest challenges, one of the greatest strengths for us, is to be able to separate the rivalries of clubs and the national team.Unfortunately, the emotions of the match yesterday (Sunday) were still bright.My feeling is that the good thing for the team is the action We have made the decision now that the decision was made with the agreement of the entire team, it is important that we support the players and we focus on Thursday night.
