What position do you think Wayne Rooney should play?

Comments (0)

England kicked off their World Cup campaign against Italy over the weekend and despite the game’s late start, many watched in eager anticipation.

Daniel Sturridge’s goal wasn’t enough to prevent the Three Lions from slipping to a 2-1 defeat as Claudio Marchisio and Mario Balotelli scored for the Azzurri.

Again Wayne Rooney played in an unfamiliar role on the left, with many feeling he is wasted on the wing and needs to be used in a more central position.

The majority of fans feel it was a good game and will be heartened by England’s decent display, and that they will need to be more clinical in their next game against Uruguay on Thursday 19th June.
