Rooney Gets Lauded For England Display!

Rooney Gets Lauded For England Display!

It was another night without an England goal for Wayne Rooney last night.

Although England scored four Rooney extended his barren run, in an England shirt, to 11 games.

But his performance was full of verve and it was Rooney`s excellent pass that provided Ashley Cole with the assist for that vital first goal.

After the game, Fabio Capello spoke about Rooney in his press conference, remarking,

"The assists of Rooney were fantastic. The position Rooney played this evening was different to what he plays usually. I asked him to play differently and he did very well."

"I spoke with him before the game. We knew the style when we prepared the game, what really happens on the pitch, what system Bulgaria would play."

"I decided to play Rooney in this position."

"He had to stay just in front of the two central midfielders and, from this position, go forward. He had to have free movement."

"He had to get lots of touches of the ball because his quality is so good."


So is Rooney on the way back or has he never really been away?

He's been really struggling for from since his injury but he went back to basics yesterday. Dropping deep, getting on the ball and linking play is his bread and butter. As good as he was last year being a goal poacher just isn't natural to him (the fact that he's so good at it is testament to his ability) I think he needs a few more of this type performances to build his form and confidence but it does look like he's turned the corner (or at least stated to)

I agree. I feel he's wasted when he plays the furthest up the pitch he has so much more to his game that it seems a shame that all he's required to do sometimes is nod the ball into the back of the net. If only we had a player who could consistently score goals for us so that Rooney could be free to play however he wants.

He's not getting lauded by the Sunday tabloids today though is he? I guess the headlines could explain why he's looked a bit "distracted" for both England and yourselves. Rooney is a first class idiot to do these things in public, I'm sure you'll all agree. High profile players need to keep a low profile if you know what I mean.

Dunno famous, but I'm sure lashings of cash and their every whim catered to don't help too much! Also take into account the fact they can't spend too much on Booze or anything on the illegal pharmaceuticals that loads of other wealthy people their age allegedly dabble with, and what do you have left? The ladies, and let's face it, Rooney ain't the most handsome lad (neither is Peter Crouch), therefore he pays for it. I'm too young to remember the days when players used to take the bus training, but somehow I'm pining for those days!
