ROONEY WANTS ENGLAND CALL
The striker of Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, has said that he wants to be included in the England national team for the friendly match against Sweden which is going to be played on 14th of November.
After England’s world cup qualifying match against Poland on Monday, the manager of the England team, Roy Hodgson, had said that some of the senior players of the team would be rested for the friendly cash against Sweden next month. But, Rooney doesn’t want to be rested.
When asked whether he wants to feature for England in the match against Sweden in November, Rooney said, “Yes, off course. I don’t want to miss any international game. I have already told the manager that I want to go to Stockholm for that match.”
Rooney was the captain of the England team in the match against San Marino which was played on 12th of October at the Wembley Stadium. England had won that match by a huge margin of 5-0. But, in the next match against Poland, the English team wasn’t able to secure a victory. The match against Poland ended in the form of a draw and the English team managed to get only one point.
The English team has played four World cup qualifying matches so far and they have won two out of them. The rest two matches have ended without any result. The English team currently has 8 points in four matches.
When asked whether he thinks that the England team will be able to qualify for the World Cup 2014, Rooney said, “I think we will. It’s not an easy group, but, we have played well so far. We could have played a bit better against Poland, but, that match is history now. We still have to play six more games and we need to look forward to them. I believe that we have got a good enough team to qualify for the World Cup.”
