Here’s one thing that’s intrigued me over the last week. Rooney, after securing most goals ever scored for his/our country has been invited back for one last cap. One last chance to put the shirt on, in a friendly, where the charities he supports will benefit. Aaaah.

Am I soft for thinking this a well deserved gesture? A nice thing? I seem to be in a minority, especially listening to former players views. I’m thinking they are jealous. Some people of course think he abandoned us, others feel he didn’t do enough in major tournaments. Whatever your gripe, he is England’s highest scorer... in history. I think that’s something to be proud of and should be celebrated. This is a friendly. He is also in good form. What harm does it do?
