The Manchester City attacker has been included for the Round of 16 tie despite an under-par Euro 2016 so far

Raheem Sterling has been recalled for England's Euro 2016 knockout fixture against Iceland in Nice on Monday.

The Manchester City attacker has come under fire for his poor displays in the tournament so far when starting against Russia and Wales in Group B, but Roy Hodgson has shown faith in Sterling by bringing him back into the fold after resting six players for the 0-0 draw with Slovakia.

Sterling will start on the left of attack, with Harry Kane also returning and Daniel Sturridge retaining his place on the right.
