England striker Wayne Rooney has vowed to make a good impression on new manager Roy Hodgson as he prepares to start Euro 2012 on the sidelines due to his two-match ban.

"It's important I do my training right. I've had a long time to think about missing these games and obviously it's disappointing. But it's something I've dealt with really.

"With missing the first two games, you never know with the new manager if he's got you in his plans or wants to have (the same) players involved in all the games. But I will get myself ready and as fit as I can be.

"It's a tough group with some good teams. We have to make sure we're focused on each game and take it from there."
