Internationals: A good week for Rooney, De Gea and Falcao

Internationals: A good week for Rooney, De Gea and Falcao

As proper football returns, here's a quick update on how United's international players got on around the world. Let's start with England, shall we? That's where Manchester is, after all. Though injury and squad purging meant that only one United player made Roy Hodgson's squad for the games against San Marino and Estonia, Wayne Rooney took advantage of the relatively soft opposition to add two more goals to his overall tally. England's brave and glorious captain now has 43 goals, though the record books won't note that his performance against Estonia was, free-kick aside, very much of the...

Rooney and Shaw called up for England duty

The international break is coming! Get excited! In perhaps the least surprising development in the history of football, Wayne Rooney, captain of England, has been called up to the England squad for the forthcoming Euro 2016 qualifying games against San Marino and Estonia. That, at least, will give him some football to play over the next few weeks, as he serves his suspension for kicking Stewart Downing right in the Big Sams. More interesting, perhaps, is the fact that no other Manchester United players make the senior squad, despite the FA's vaguely amusing belief that Danny Welbeck is...

Marking ten years since Wayne Rooney's Manchester United debut

It's been a decade since Old Trafford witnessed one of the all-time great first appearances ... "We firmly believe that in Wayne we've got one of the brightest young talents in England for many, many years ..." Ten years and counting, as it happens. Those words came from the mouth of David Gill, as Wayne Rooney was unveiled to the world as a Manchester United player. Signed at the end of August 2004, he didn't make his debut until 28 September against Fenerbahce, his first taste of European football. And as you may recall, it went quite well ... Since then, Rooney's won five league titles,...

Rooney accepts he deserved to be sent off

Rooney accepts he deserved to be sent off

Not even United's captain can argue that he should have stayed on the pitch. Wayne Rooney has accepted that the referee made the right decision to send him off an hour into Saturday's game against West Ham United. Manchester United's captain was shown a red card after he attempted to trip Stewart Downing but ended up -- and there is no gentle way of putting this so we're going to be blunt -- punting him in the balls: It was probably the right decision. I saw the West Ham player making a counter-attack and I tried to break up the play, but I just misjudged it. I didn't absolutely volley the...
