BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: Wayne Rooney 'hurt' over England's exit

'Hurting' Rooney backs Hodgson

Wayne Rooney says he is "hurting" over England's early World Cup exit, but insists manager Roy Hodgson is the man to take the team forward.

The Manchester United forward goes on to say Hodgson has "changed the way we play" and that as a team "we can feel we're getting better".

Goalkeeper Joe Hart thanks England's supporters for their support and says he "can only apologise" for the defeats to Italy and Uruguay.
