The Three Lions need to beat Czech Republic on Tuesday to finish top of their group, which will likely set up a daunting clash against one of France, Portugal or Germany.
Finland's loss to Belgium on Monday sealed England's place in the knockout rounds, but Gareth Southgate's side want to finish the group stage on a high.
Asked if playing at home was an extra incentive to win the group, Sterling said: "Yes, there is always an advantage being on home soil, that's for sure.
"With the fans roaring and making it a hostile place to come, I do think it can be a good advantage for us.
"We've got four points — I keep stressing we've got four points — we've got one game to go and we're going to need our fans tomorrow to get us across the line.
"We haven't spoken on [permutations]. The objective is to try to win the group — and that's it."
