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

Watch Out Portugal - Rooney's Back!

Bad news for the rest of the teams left in the World Cup, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has declared:

'I can feel my form coming back. Every day I'm getting better.'

So watch out Portugal, Rooney hopes 'by the time this game against Portugal comes I'll be back to my best.'

Rooney, whose broken foot has been the subject of national debate for the last few months said:

'Once I'd got the news that I'd broken my foot, I had one day off and then went back in and started training. While I was injured people might have thought I was just sitting around doing nothing, but I was training and doing everything I could to keep myself fit. The doctor told me if I worked hard, it would heal. It has done. I stayed positive and always believed I'd play in the World Cup.'

'There was probably a moment after about two weeks when I felt I was going to make it. From that moment I couldn't feel any pain in my foot. When I started training again I wasn't scared about taking a challenge, because the doctors had told me that if there was contact there wouldn't be a problem - that took a lot of pressure off me. Luckily for me it has healed in time and since I came back I've felt good.'

Rooney visibly grew as the match went on against Ecuador and he explains 'I can feel my form coming back. Every day I'm getting better. The more you're playing, the more you're touching the ball, the better it gets. Hopefully by the time this game against Portugal comes I'll be back to my best.'
