Raheem Sterling back in England training after personal issues

England trained together at St George's Park on Tuesday

Raheem Sterling is back with the England squad after being granted extra time off by Gareth Southgate to deal with a personal issue.

The Manchester City forward – who helped Pep Guardiola claim the Premier League title this season – reported to St George’s Park last night and will remain part of the group going forward.

England’s first training session ahead of this summer’s World Cup took place yesterday with Harry Kane and Dele Alli among the players who took part.

England will be captained by Kane, who said it was an “amazing honour” to wear the armband in Russia.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill and Manchester United quartet Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford will arrive on Saturday after recovering from the FA Cup final.

Meanwhile, Liverpool duo Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are not expected to join the rest of the England squad until next month as they prepare to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.

England face Tunisia in their opening game on June 18 before playing Panama and Belgium in their remaining Group G fixtures.
