@AFC_Harry34 getting bored of people jumping on the band wagon making Rooney scape goat, what exactly did he do wrong? Miss that chance? was his cross that set up Sturridges goal an inch too high for peoples liking?

The facts are... He was Englands top goal scorer in qualifying, he set up a goal despite playing in the a position that he doesn't normally play, yes he missed a chance that was by no means a sitter but all strikers do that. He may have been a little quiet but who knows he wasn't doing exactly what was asked of him by Hodgson? i.e. 'doing a job for the team.'

People are looking too much at his goal record at World Cups (where he went to both of them injured) and making him a scape goat.
