Armed intruders entered the home of Chelsea forward Raheem Sterling whilst he was away with England at the World Cup.

The robbery took place on Saturday night, and Sterling has now returned to England to make sure his family are all okay.

Meanwhile, England players have all beefed up security at their homes after armed thugs broke into Raheem Sterling’s house.

The team also offered their support to the Chelsea forward, 27, after the raid when his fiancé and children were home.

The BBC reported the break-in at 27-year-old Sterling’s London home occurred on Saturday night.

Manager Gareth Southgate said after England’s victory: “Raheem is having to deal with a family situation. He’s going back to England.

“We have to give him time to try to resolve that, or be there for his family. That’s the most important thing. We are going to give him that space. It didn’t impact team selection. I spent a lot of time with Raheem this morning, so you have days where events happen and you have to deal with them.

“He’s on his way home. We are obviously mindful of him being allowed space and respect his privacy, so we don’t want to talk about it in too much detail.

“It’s not ideal for the group ahead of the big game, but it pales into insignificance – the individual is more important than the group in these moments.”

England’s opening goal scorer Jordan Henderson told ITV: “I hope everything’s OK with Raheem’s family at home and I hope he goes back and can sort everything out.

“Hopefully he can then come back, but I suppose he’ll have to assess when he gets there. All our thoughts and support are with him.”

England defender Eric Dier added: “We all wish him and his family well. We hope everyone’s OK. I just found out before the game. I don’t know more than that, just wish him all the best.”
