England defated USA with 2-0 in a friendy-game at Wembley yesterday. This was a match where Rooney should impress Capello in his new role as a center-target. How did it go? According to The Guardian who gave him a 5 in rating not very well.
From The Guardian:
“Wayne Rooney, 5
Radar askew for much of the first-half, he struggled to pick passes while his touch was heavy. Booked in the second half for a reckless challenge.”
Did you watch the match? Do you agree with The Guardian?
Tonight we will see Wayne Rooney in a new role for his England playing against USA at Wembley. Capello have decided to play him as a target player behind a striker.
“In my opinion, his best position is as a central striker, just behind the person who plays up front,” Capello says.
“That way he can play with his face to the goal rather than his back. You need someone more advanced but then have someone who can move around him. It is good for Wayne because he knows he must score more goals.”
Wayne Rooney will start for his England in a friendly against USA on Wednesday at Wembley.
The new England manager, Capello, will start with Rooney behind a striker in a 4-4-1-1 formation. Capello has not finalised the team but at the training sessions he has been paired with Dean Ashton (West Ham). Other options in front of Rooney is Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe.
