As reported by sky sports UK, 25-year-old Raheem Sterling is expected to be apart of England’s bio-secure bubble located at St George’s Park days from now however based on recent happenings the number 7 might not join the group.
The Jamaican born player who would be an automatic starter in important matches for England is now in doubt after he attended a party with Usain Bolt who has been confirmed to be carrying Covid-19. This happens at the wrong time for sterling because England’s national football team coach Gareth Southgate is set to name the squad for their upcoming Nations League vs Iceland and Denmark.
Sterling was also in close contact with Recardo “Bibi” Gardner and and seen beside several other popular Jamaicans at the surprise party last Friday.
Ding Dong, Desha ravers, Christopher Martin, Leon Bailey, Kasi and many others were present at the party dancing and raving especially when Koffee’s Lockdown song started playing. It can be said that the stars were present but the masks were absent.
The report further stated that all the players along with Sterling will be tested before they join the training camp on Monday, August 31st. The tests are expected to be done soon and should Sterling or any other player(s) test positive, that player(s) will not be included in the camp.
Born in Jamaica, Raheem moved to England at the age of 5, he played for QPR, Liverpool and now playing at Manchester City after signing in July, 2015 for a reported 49 million pounds which was the highest for a player at his age at the time.
Bolt earlier stated that he woke up and checked social media while doing so he saw the news, Bolt states that he did a test over the weekend because he was scheduled to leave the Island and go work overseas. Bolt also explained that even though he did not experience any symptom(s) he has since been in quarantine and urges the people who were in contact with him to also self-quarantine.
