Raheem Sterling is a winger and attacking midfielder for Manchester City. Since his move to the club in 2015, he has been responsible for their Premier League win in both of the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 seasons. He is heralded as one of the best players and scorers in European football and is set to play a key role in England’s success in the tournament.
He may have spent the majority of this season pushing through a series of injuries but even ankle ligament damage isn’t enough to stop this centre forward. His place on the squad was compromised in 2020 after a string of incidents on the pitch but this announcement proves that he is back and better than ever and ready to take on his rivals. He has emerged as a frontrunner on a number of online betting sites.
