Rooney -Is He Really Fit to Play in WC?
World Cup England
by LordHarryLadd (U14098160) 25 May 2010
The latest report from the England camp that all is well with Rooney is a tad puzzling. It's about the third time in a week where they've been at pains to reassure the country that all is well with Rooney. You are never so adamant to reassure if all is okay. It smacks of a cover-up with regard to his true level of fitness if you ask me. Not saying he's completely crocked. But I believe he's being asked to play through a pain barrier that would normally require quite a bit of rest. I suspect SAF has been asked to stay silent in the cause by his man, who is so desperate to be part of this WC. England have unfortunately made themselves 100% reliant on him, as his absence would have had a devastating impact on England's morale.
