Wayne Rooney Eager For Action
Reportedly, Wayne Rooney simply cannot wait to get back for England’s third and final group fixture in the 2012 European Championships against Ukraine at the Olympic Stadium next Tuesday. The Manchester United marksman serves the last match of his two-game ban when The Three Lions take on Sweden in Kiev this Friday.
Aged seventeen, Wayne Rooney earned himself his first senior cap for the country of his birth in an international friendly encounter against Australia at Boleyn Ground on the 12th of February 2003. The Liverpool born frontrunner was very young of age but his potential greatness was already shining through and in the UEFA European Football Championships in Portugal the following year he became the youngest ever goal scorer in the history of the tournament when he netted an amazing brace in the respectable 3–0 success against Switzerland. Then a mere four days later, Wazza´s youthful bravado surfaced again when he scored another double in the convincing 4–2 triumph over Croatia. And despite the fact that his England career has had its fair share of ups and downs, Wayne Rooney has still managed to contribute 28 hits in 78 appearances for The Three Lions. But perhaps above all, playing at international level for nearly a decade has taught him to curb his own natural impetuosity. Wayne Rooney: “I love playing football but I think I am like everyone else, I hate losing and love winning. And if the time comes when I am not disappointed when things are definitely not going right, then that’s when people should worry.”
