Rooney The Armchair Fan!

Rooney The Armchair Fan!

Wayne Rooney revealed that he will watch tomorrow's crucial Euro 2008 qualifier between Israel and Russia.

The United striker, currently out injured, is desperate to take part in Euro 2008, not surprising as he made his name in the continental tournament three and a half years ago. But he can't do anything for it, not on Saturday and not on Wednesday when England are actually in action.

So all he can contribute is cheering on Israel on his own sofa, that he will do, no question.

'I love watching pretty much any football, especially if the game means something.

'I am not so much nervous, it is more frustrating because it is a very important game and it is out of our hands.

'But I like watching games where you need a team to drop points. It's like the Arsenal-Chelsea game at the end of last season.

'Chelsea had to win otherwise we won the league. Arsenal were winning but then Chelsea got an equaliser and probably should have snatched a winner in the end, so I was quite nervous watching that one.'


And how nervous we all were... But it was worth it, eh? Anyway, I'm a bit baffled that the whole nation are like 'if Israel lose we are out'. No, chaps, England can overtake Croatia if they manage to lose at Macedonia. I know it's unlikely but could happen, couldn't it? If the Macedonians were capable of snatching a draw at Old Trafford...
