However, blasting such abuses and cheap comments, Neville has now praised Sterling's performance and insisted the player is being targetted without any reason.

"The actual treatment at half-time of him across social media was absolutely disgusting, and isn't representative of the performance he put in", Neville told ITV. "OK, we didn't have the cherry on the cake, the goal, where all of a sudden you're a hero, but it was a brilliant performance".

Former England skipper David Beckham has called on fans to stop slanging Raheem Sterling after the jet-heeled winger came in for a barrage of criticism following the Three Lions' 2-0 win over Sweden in their 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-final.

Midfielder Eric Dier has said that he is "so, so happy" for the recognition that England and Tottenham Hotspur teammate Kieran Trippier has received during the World Cup. Every player deserves to be applauded.

"Our last three games were different because we played teams with a defensive approach", he said.

Meanwhile, ignoring all the abuses and taunts, Sterling has applauded the support of English fans in Russian Federation.


"It's so clear to see if you were to watch back the games, the importance he has on the team".

And ahead of England's semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday evening, Jones has questioned whether Sterling should keep his place in Southgate's starting lineup ahead of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

"They dealt with Sweden relatively easily so we know they are going to be a hard opponent and we respect them", he said. He offers so much to the team, ' he said.

"If we had England's money, who knows where we'd be in our country?"
