Rooney could be ready for England action

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes that striker Wayne Rooney may be fit to feature in England's upcoming European Championship qualifier against Montenegro. The 24-year-old is currently struggling with an ankle injury and will miss his club's clash with Sunderland this weekend, but Ferguson thinks that Rooney could ready to play some part in the Euro2012 qualifier a week on Tuesday. He told the local radio station Key103: "Wayne trained yesterday and he wants to play tomorrow. "But I have to take the view that this injury has been niggling away for a while and he kept on playing. "I have to be dead sure that I am doing the right thing, because Wayne has not been doing himself justice. "I think in a week he will be fine. Obviously we don't play in a week, so it is up to Fabio Capello whether he wants him to."
