The latest incident in the English national team between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez saw City’s winger pick up a one-match suspension.

Gareth Southgate decided to punish Raheem Sterling for his behavior. Manchester City’s talent earned a suspension for the Montenegro match.

Harry Maguire spoke on the matter, telling the other players’ side of the story.

“As players, it’s not ultimately our decision for the punishment of Raheem,” Maguire said, as quoted by Metro.

“I’m sure a lot of players have been put in a situation where they’d make a decision, but it’s not their choice in the final.”

However, the Three Lions will have to do without Sterling. England is looking to clinch their European Championship spot by beating Montenegro.
