‘Raheem Sterling’s contribution to England is huge’ – Seaman hits back at critics

first_imgDavid Seaman has hit back at the criticism of Raheem Sterling and insists the forward makes a ‘massive contribution’ to the England team which goes further than scoring goals.Sterling has come under-fire for his wastefulness in front of goal at the World Cup, where England are through the semi-finals for the first time since 1990.He was again a target for frustrated fans after going another game without scoring in Saturday’s quarter-final win over Sweden – despite a number of big chances.But many former players and pundits have defended the Manchester City flyer, and now former England No.1 goalkeeper Seaman has also jumped to Sterling’s aid.He agrees the 23-year-old has not been ruthless enough but says his darting forward runs terrify defences and that he plays a key role in Gareth Southgate’s squad.Asked if criticism of the young forward is too harsh, Seaman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “For me is it, yeah.“He’s not scored a goal yet and he’s getting a lot of chances, so people are just focusing on that.“But the dangers he poses are fantastic for the team. 3 But Seaman insists Sterling is one of England’s key players at the World Cup and has backed him to score 3 3center_img Sterling missed a one-on-one chance against Sweden “His overall contribution to England is massive – it’s far greater than goals.“He stretches the opponents’ defence, he defends down that channel as well and the threat of his pace is frightening – defenders hate that.“He’s always a threat. Defenders hate someone with pace, no matter if they can’t finish. They can always square it across the box for somebody to tap it in.”And while some have suggested Sterling should be dropped for England’s upcoming semi-final against Croatia, Seaman says there is no way he should lose this place.“The pressure is building on him but for me he stays in all day long”, added the former Arsenal and Man City goalkeeper.“I’m just praying for him to score a goal – that would be a cherry on top apart from getting to the final.”Tune into talkSPORT for LIVE commentary of England v Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals: Wednesday July 11 – KICK OFF 7PM BST He was later thwarted by the keeper again after a brilliant ball over the top from Jordan Henderson last_img read more
