Nations League: Sterling captains England against the Netherlands

Raheem Sterling will captain England for the first time on his 50th cap in Thursday’s Nations League semi-final against the Netherlands, with Harry Kane and Jordan Henderson left on the bench.

Both Kane and Henderson were involved in Saturday’s Champions League final as Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 and England boss Gareth Southgate decided against starting any of the seven members of his squad who featured in Madrid.

Marcus Rashford starts in place of Kane up front, flanked by Sterling and Jadon Sancho with Declan Rice, Fabian Delph and Ross Barkley forming an experimental midfield trio.

The Netherlands do include two Champions League winners as Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum start, as do wonder kids Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong.

  1. I wish to express thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this particular instance. Just after researching through the online world and seeing recommendations which were not powerful, I thought my entire life was done. Being alive without the approaches to the difficulties you have sorted out by way of this short post is a serious case, and the kind that would have in a wrong way damaged my career if I had not come across the blog. Your own know-how and kindness in touching all things was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your impressive and result oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to propose your blog post to anybody who needs and wants counselling about this subject matter.
