Rooney about England Clash

Anything less than a comprehensive beating of Andorra on Saturday will restart the deluge of critique, and the Manchester United star knows that the unthinkable act of dropping points against the minnows will have dire consequences for all involved.“I think especially as we didn’t qualify for the Euros, it’s a massive game for us now,” Rooney said to Setanta Sports' Friday Football Show.“We want to start off the campaign well and get the three points.

“We know from last time we played them it will be a fairly tough game – we had to work quite hard for the victory.“We understand it’s going to be a tough game but we want to go out there and put a good performance on.“We let ourselves down – we let the country down – by not qualifying for the Euros.“There’s been things saying the players don’t care: us players are proud and privileged to play for our country and we will give the best we can.“We all want to win trophies with our country.”Andorra played host to England last year in a fiery encounter where Wayne Rooney had to be substituted on the hour mark by then manager Steve McClaren for fear he would be sent for an early bath
