Chelsea attacker Raheem Sterling joins England training Friday in Qatar

Chelsea attacker Raheem Sterling has returned to England training in Qatar for the first time since he flew back to London after his family home was burgled.

Sterling, 28, returned to the UK on Sunday night after it emerged his house in Surrey had been burgled triggering security concerns for his family.

The Chelsea winger has flown back to the England camp and was spotted in training for the first time since the incident. He is likely to be on the bench, given the recent turmoil, against France in Saturday's World Cup quarter-final.

On Sterling's availability for the game against France, England coach Gareth Southgate said yesterday: "We will have to assess that. He has missed a lot of training and had two long flights.

"That is not good preparation for a game of this standard but let's see how he is."
