Eric Dier: Importance of `fantastic´ Raheem Sterling to…

Beckham and Sir Geoff Hurst, though, defended Sterling's displays after the quarter-final win against Sweden.

Ex-England right-back and coach Gary Neville blasted the half-time treatment of the 23-year-old on social media as "absolutely disgusting".

"To run in behind [Andreas] Granqvist all that time, he kept getting in and getting in. OK, we didn't have the cherry on the cake, the goal, where all of a sudden you're a hero, but it was a brilliant performance".

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has again fell under intense criticism during England's 2-0 victory over Sweden in the World Cup quarterfinal after he missed a chance after running onto Jordan Henderson's floated pass over the Sweden defense during the first half.

Beckham said: "It is wrong".

Jones, who made just nine worldwide appearances for Wales, believes Sterling relies to heavily on his speed and slammed his finishing so far this World Cup. Every player deserves to be applauded.

"I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England's team) since they are in the semi-finals, that says it all". It's so clear to see if you were to watch back our games, the importance he has to the team.

"The way Raheem's handled everything from when we met up until now has been incredible", said Dier.
