'Sharp' Rooney dismisses critics

13 Oct 2010 - 09:17:40

Wayne Rooney has dismissed fears about his form and fitness after insisting he feels 'sharp'.

The Manchester United striker missed two goalscoring chances during England's goalless Euro 2012 qualifying draw with Montenegro at Wembley on Tuesday.

Rooney was playing for the first time since picking up an ankle injury almost three weeks ago.

The 24-year-old has scored just one goal in six club appearances this season and is reported to be struggling to cope with the media attention that recent revelations concerning his private life have brought.

Last week Rooney pleaded for patience after admitting he was "only human" and not playing to his potential.

However, speaking after the Wembley stalemate, the striker dismissed suggestions that his game is still some way short of its best.

"I felt sharp," he said. "A couple of chances, maybe with the first I could have done better. The keeper made a good save with the second.

"I've been training for the last two months and I haven't missed a training session so there's no problem with my fitness."
