The nation fumes as Hodgson affords £49m Man City star shock return to England team

Perhaps there is not one player that sums up the current state of English football so well as Raheem Sterling.

The Manchester City star emerged as a hugely rated talent at Liverpool, seemingly with the world at his feet, and was touted for great things.

While he remains a monumental prospect, the 21-year old has struggled since a record breaking move to the Etihad in the summer of 2015, failing to wholly convince.

He huffs. He puffs. But does anything really ever come off for him? Not at the moment.

Like so many others before him, the Three Lions winger is beginning to attract a series of groans and grumbles every time one of his dribbles fail to come off.

It is a far cry from the sort of attacking enterprise he displayed earlier on his Reds career, with the player seeing to be bereft of confidence.

Ahead of England’s crunch second-round Euro 2016 with Iceland, users on Twitter have vented their frustration as the City star has been restored to the starting lineup place of Adam Lallana this evening.

In a week that has seen sterling drop, many English fans from around the world appear to wish that Roy Hodgson had followed suit with 52% of the country.
