Wayne Rooney Out Of England Friendly?

Aston Villa vs Manchester United
Man United striker Wayne Rooney is a major injury doubt for England’s friendly against Egypt this Wednesday.

Rooney came on for United just before half time in the Carling Cup match against Aston Villa today scoring the winning goal, he did finish the game and there was no reason to believe that he picked up an injury.

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Rooney was feeling some slight discomfort in his knee after the game.

Sir Alex said: "He [Rooney] got a whack right away”

"He has been complaining a little about that for a few weeks and was holding it a bit today. In fact I thought we might have to take him off but he wanted to stay on so it was good. The doctors are assessing it and I don't know what England are going to do.''

This is a pointless friendly for Rooney, we all know that if he is fit Fabio Capello will chose him to play for England. He doesn’t need to prove anything so why risk him for a friendly? Neither Man United or England want their star striker to pick up an injury.
