ENGLAND stars have spent thousands boosting their home security to foil the Away Day burglary gangs while they are at the Euros.

Members of Gareth Southgate‘s squad have installed military-grade equipment to avoid a repeat of the raid on Raheem Sterling, 29, during the World Cup.

England stars have installed military-grade equipment to foil gangs while they’re at the Euros

Sterling, 29, had to rush home from the tournament in Qatar in December, 2022, when a gang stole £300,000 worth of designer watches from his house while his fiancée and their two children were home.

High profile raids on other stars’ homes have continued to grab the headlines since that break-in at the Chelsea star’s mansion in Surrey, Cobham.

Manchester City ace Jack Grealish, 28, and Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak, 24, have both fallen victim while they were away from home.

And now that the Three Lions have landed in Germany they have taken every precaution possible to secure their luxury mansions during the tournament.

A source said: “Players don’t want any worry or distractions whilst away.

“They’ve seen what’s happened previously and want to make sure their focus is on the tournament, at any cost.”

No expense has been spared as security firms installed cutting edge security technology including night vision cameras with a detection range of around 150ft and 8K resolution.

Ex-Army personnel with highly trained guard dogs will also be patrolling the grounds of their homes and will even operate surveillance drones with 360-degree vision which fly too high for attackers to disable them.

The tightening up of the stars’ defences on the home front follows reports of the Wags splashing out £100,000 on private bodyguards for the tournament.

They are set to hire ex-military specialists amid fears of terror attacks following chilling ISIS threats issued ahead of Champions League matches this season.

Security experts applauded the players’ plans to increase their home security.

Christian Hill, managing director of security firm Intelligent Protection, said: “Footballers competing in the Euros should absolutely consider security for their homes and families whilst away as a matter of priority.

“This should be at the forefront of their minds as robberies have become front-page news over the past few years and more than likely have involved players they know or even their own teammates.

“These high-profile players can relieve the anxiety, stress and worry they must all get when leaving their families by contacting a security company and allowing them to provide support.

“This will help the player to be fully focused on doing their job on the pitch.”

The squad landed in Germany on Monday and headed to their Euros base at the 350-acre Weimarer Golf Hotel and Spa at Blankenhain, eastern Germany.

Boss Southgate, 53, was keen to get his squad onto the training pitch yesterday to prepare for their tournament opener against Serbia on Sunday following the woeful 1-0 defeat to Iceland last week.
