BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: Where should Rooney play for England?

Where should Rooney play for England?

BBC Sport pundits reflect on Wayne Rooney's performance against Italy and debate what the Manchester United player's best position is.

Rio Ferdinand says Rooney should be played in his preferred role of striker or number ten, not out on the left, "if you want to get the best out of him."

England's World Cup campaign started in defeat against Italy, a Mario Balotelli header secured a 2-1 victory for Italy.
