Sterling is dangerous: Dalic

Croatia Coach Zlatko Dalic has identified Raheem Sterling as England’s danger man in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday.
Sterling was a key part of the Manchester City side that won the Premier League last season, but he has been less effective in England’s charge to the last four for the first time since 1990.
Despite some disappointing early performances, England coach Gareth Southgate has kept faith with the 23-year-old and his speed was a constant threat to Sweden’s defence in England’s 2-0 quarter-final win on Saturday.
“I think Raheem Sterling is an important player, because he is fast and dangerous alongside Harry Kane,” Dalic said in a press conference Sunday.
“I wouldn’t say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England’s team) since they are in the semi-finals, that says it all. They play very direct football, dangerous, fast, and they are really good at set pieces, and dangerous at corner kicks.”
