The Manchester City winger has come under fire by pundits and supporters, even before the World Cup started, when his choice of tattoos were questioned by British tabloids.

Raheem Sterling paid tribute to England's fans after helping the team reach a "dream" World Cup semi-final.

Sterling was England's most risky attacking player in Samara, but attracted criticism online for missing a great chance after running onto Jordan Henderson's floated pass over the Swedish defence in the first half . "Got past my opponent a couple of times, got a couple of balls in, and you just get caned [by the media]" Sterling said (h/t ESPN FC).

'I know there's been a lot of criticism for Sterling, ' Jones told talkSPORT.

'He is getting in all the right positions, but sometimes you look at Sterling and you think, if he didn't have that pace he'd be playing for Exeter or someone.

Raheem Sterling has been criticised for his performances at the World Cup.

However, the England manager is hesitant to change what has been a winning formula in Russian Federation and Sterling is odds on to retain his place in the lineup when the Three Lions take on Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday night.

However, Beckham posted on his Instagram story to share his thoughts on the issue in which he screenshotted an article that spoke about the reception that Sterling received after the game. Every player deserves to be applauded.
