ROONEY CONTINUES TO WISH ENGLAND WELL

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 set-up.

The Frenchman has responded in brilliant fashion by recently scoring the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win over Everton. Still, United can do with goals from other players like Rooney. After spending a spell on the sidelines due to an injury, the striker is set to return for the club’s next match against Tottenham. The title chasing team will be hosting the Red Devils at White Hart Lane intent on winning at all costs. Continue reading Ander Herrera feels Rooney Come back will help MU
