He is ready to deal with problems being a manager of the England national team and is not at all taken aback by such clashes.  Raheem Sterling, a winger and attacking midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the England national team got enmeshed in a wrangle with Liverpool's Gomez in his side's 3-1 Premier League defeat on Sunday and on Thursday has been dropped for England's Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.

Southgate asserted that Sterling was responsible for the provocation at the team hotel. Sterling confessed that the episode led his emotions get the better of him. The entire squad has come to agreement with the rubber stamp of dropping him off as a result of a disturbance in a private team area.
