Rooney breaks silence to wish England luck after Kane takes over as captain

Date Posted,June 10, 2017

Wayne Rooney has broken his silence after being left out of England’s team to play Scotland at Hampden Park.

Harry Kane took over captain duties for the World Cup qualifying clash after impressing Gareth Southgate with his leadership qualities in the week.

Taking to Twitter to show his support for the Three Lions team, Rooney wrote: “Good luck to the lads against Scotland today. Do the business England”.

And it seems his kind words prompted a positive reaction from the world of social media, with one fan writing: “Dignity, well said Wayne, back soon.”

While another added: “England are nothing without you. No Rooney, no party.”

The Manchester United forward endured a difficult season at Old Trafford in the campaign just gone.

The 31-year-old found himself featured less and less in Jose Mourinho’s plans as United lifted both the EFL Cup and Europa League trophy.

His lack of game time resulted in his fall from grace with the national team, with Southgate acknowledging it as a major factor for him being overlooked.

The England manager’s decision has cast serious doubt over Rooney’s international career as he continues to look for a new domestic club next season.
