DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Raheem Sterling will rejoin England's FIFA World Cup squad after a break-in at his home in the United Kingdom.

The Chelsea forward had left England's camp in Qatar to be with his family, which meant he missed his country's 3-0 win against Senegal in the round of 16 on Sunday.

But he will now fly back out to rejoin Gareth Southgate's squad ahead of their quarter-final match against France at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Wakrah, south of Doha tomorrow.

"Raheem Sterling will return to England's World Cup base in Qatar," the English Football Association said yesterday. "The Chelsea forward temporarily left to attend to a family matter but is now expected to rejoin the squad in Al Wakrah on Friday ahead of the quarter-final with France."
