Wayne Rooney sitting on Bench makes News everytime

There was a time when Wayne Rooney being benched in an international game would have made the biggest breaking news in English press and the manager responsible for that would have to provide the most suitable of the explanations to justify what he has done.


Rooney had to be the first name on the sheet, no matter where England is playing and against whom. But, times and situations do change for a sportsperson and quite dramatically.

We are in an era now where if Roy Hodgson doesn’t put Rooney among the starters on 11th of next month when England makes the start of their run in the European Championships, it would not be difficult for people to make peace with that because there are players who are more likely to win England the game in the front line than Rooney is.

Thierry Henry wants Rooney to be included in England Squad

Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry is of the opinion that Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney should be included in the England squad, but he admitted that the 30-year-old is no longer the first choice with the team.

Rooney has been suffering from poor form in the last two years, but it has been due to a combination of being played out of position. Since the arrival of Anthony Martial, Rooney has been asked to play in a variety of roles like an attacking midfielder or wide man. These are positions where scoring a lot of goals will be tough.
