And Sterling, who has become the driving force behind football’s fight against racism in England, believes that home success is a turning point.
“It would be an important milestone. There are still a lot of people in our country who are a bit locked in, “Sterling said.
“I think this success can cause them to open up.
And if Gareth Southgate’s side wins, Sterling hopes it can be crucial
“But at least an English win for the euro, regardless of the team composition, would have a positive impact on the entire country and in all areas.
“I honestly think England is a country ready to answer these questions. But it will take time to change things, because there must also be candidates from minorities.
“We will continue to push in this direction.”

Sterling’s comments came just a day after he explained the issue of racism in football, revealing that his first encounter was when he was at the Liverpool academy.
The Manchester City and England forward have also revealed that he is against a quota system to bring more minority coaches to the professional arena.
