Police Brief England Players Amid Fears Homes Maybe Targeted By Gangs During Euros 2024

England’s Euro 2024 players have received special briefings from police and security chiefs amid fears of copycat burglaries akin to the World Cup raid on Raheem Sterling’s home in 2022.

According to the Telegraph, the Football Association arranged a presentation in which officers gave concerned players a specific checklist on how to protect themselves and their loved ones as they fly out to Germany.

Personal security had been identified as a major priority for the players after Sterling flew home from Doha in 2022 with his family in terror following a raid on his £7 million Surrey mansion.

The FA never discloses security arrangements but extensive measures are known to be in place to counter the growing trend of gangs targeting wealthy footballers.

Several worried England players took matters into their own hands during their last extended spell away, putting security guards on 24-hour alert as Sterling flew home.
