Dropped Rooney in a ‘Difficult Period’

England captain, Wayne Rooney says he is in a “difficult period” after he was dropped by manager, Gareth Southgate for today’s World Cup qualifier against Slovenia.

The Manchester United forward has taken the decision in good faith, vowing to work even harder to ensure that he is ready when next he is called upon.

England’s record goal-scorer has been the subject of heavy criticism this season, following a string of poor performances, which has yielded just one goal in twelve games for club and country.

Rooney will retain the England captaincy, but Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will be the on-field skipper in the qualifier against Slovenia.
