And ahead of England's semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday evening, Jones has questioned whether Sterling should keep his place in Southgate's starting lineup ahead of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
The 23-year-old has scored just twice in 42 appearances for England - against modest Lithuania and Estonia - a record that stands in sharp contrast to his increasingly prolific strike rate at club level.
He scored quite a few for Manchester City because of the way they play, but that is not what he is going to do (with England).
More specifically, he's anxious about Raheem Sterling. Yet, anybody who observed England's quarter-final win over Sweden without any bias would tell you how influential Sterling was to England's gameplay.
Croatia's shoot-out victory over Russian Federation was their second straight win on penalties at the World Cup, having beaten Denmark in the same fashion in the last-16, and Dalic admitted that playing 120 minutes twice in the last six days was not ideal, particularly as some of his players are now carrying injuries.
"He had an excellent game against Sweden, running into space and stretching the defence", the former Arsenal striker added.
When I was under Ron Greenwood at West Ham, he would say to turn defenders around.
Indeed. Croatia have players in their squad who England have to be wary of.
Eric Dier believes there should be no debate about the displays Sterling has put in.
Sir Geoff, a World Cup victor in 1966, added: "Sterling was terrific".
The 3-1-4-2 formation has been Southgate's staple choice this summer - Jordan Henderson is rendered to do the dirty work at the base of the midfield while Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard provide two mobile passing outlets, intent on disrupting the opponent's system, but it is the versatility offered by Raheem Sterling as a floating link between Harry Kane and the midfield which makes the system tick.
And this could benefit England if Sterling makes the most of the space presented to him.
And former England captain Beckham has now chose to weigh in after taking a screenshot of Neville's comments.
