Wayne Rooney sent the England national team good luck messages as they prepare for their clash against Scotland in the World Cup qualifiers.
The player is on vacation in Greece where he is enjoying an extended summer break after being snubbed from the Three Lions
Gareth Southgate complained that Rooney was not getting top level football so he went with the other options. Rooney took to Instagram to wish the team well, posting: “Good luck to the lads against Scotland today. Do the business @England.”
Rooney is no longer an automatic option for club and country as his form drops. With United set to add two strikers this summer, things do not look for him. Even Marcus Rashford has overtaken the star in the pecking order. United could sign Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti soon as Jose Mourinho wants the best legs at the club.

Manchester United head coach, Louis Van Gaal said the embattled striker had a good game in the match he played as he returned to active football in a crucial time of the season.
The coach declared good job done as Manchester United enhanced their Premier League top four hopes with victory over Norwich, especially as Manchester city and Arsenal played a 2-2 draw.
Juan Mata punished Sebastien Bassong’s error as a 1-0 win at Carrow Road saw United move within one point of neighbours Manchester City. The Dutchman could yet guide United into the Champions League and FA Cup glory despite the fact that his job was threatened not too long ago.
“We did our job today. Fantastic, I think. When you see the second half, we deserved to win. We’re still in the race [for the top four].”
Van Gaal remains aggrieved at the failure to award United two penalties in the draw with champions Leicester a week ago, believing it cost United points to leave his side relying on the Gunners.
“Now we are dependent on Arsenal,” he said. This was before Arsenal did them the huge favour with the draw.
United were without Anthony Martial at Carrow Road after the striker felt a twinge in his knee in the warm up and Van Gaal was not prepared to risk the Frenchman. Continue reading LOUIS VAN GAAL: WAYNE ROONEY WAS FANTASTIC
