'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rooney Flies Back Home

Wayne Rooney flies home from the World Cup on Wednesday for the crucial scan on his broken metatarsal bone.

The results will then be analysed by medical experts from Manchester United and England, and a final decision made about his participation in the tournament.

But Gary Neville, ruled out of the last World Cup with a broken metatarsal, issued a warning that Rooney remains a long way from match action.

Neville: 'It's encouraging in one sense but I had an experience in 2002 while I was in Manchester recuperating from my broken foot and it's not always how it appears.

'I was jogging prior to my scan and went to see the specialist thinking I would be given the go-ahead to start training and was told I'd have to have an operation four days later.

'I hope that doesn't happen for Wayne, everyone wants him to take part in the World Cup, but until the surgeons have met tomorrow I don't think anybody will know for sure.'

I agree. We will win the group stages without him. Don't risk it by playing him. Its nearly 2 weeks before the knockout stages. He will be fine by then. Trust me i'm in the medical profession myself!
