Rooney looks to move on from Rome

England forward Wayne Rooney vowed to forget his Champions League disappointment a week ago but has to wait until Saturday to get it fully out of his system. Defeat by Barcelona in Rome gave the Manchester United player a taster of how good Spain will be at the World Cup next year, a tournament England will be within sight of if they beat Kazakhstan at the weekend and Andorra the following Wednesday. It was just over a year ago that John Terry overcame his devastation at club level and scored on his next England appearance and Rooney is hoping to do the same. "We were disappointed to lose the game," Rooney said. "To be honest, we decided to forget about it the next day and try to concentrate on these England games. "I'm delighted now I have a chance to put that to the back of my mind. It would be nice to get a win with England and a goal or two. We're looking forward to this game."
