Rooney Rested Today; Let's Hope Capello Follows Suit
I can't see the point of including Rooney in the squad to play Egypt personally. Surely here was the ideal opportunity to give the guy a week off? Ferguson has rested him from the League Cup Final starting 11, despite being a Scot, recognising the danger of burn out. It would be crazy for Capello to push him into action in a meaningless friendly.
Hopefully Capello will start with Cole and Defoe to see what they can do. They linked well against Holland and, of course, Cole played a killer pass to Defoe at Upton Park! No matter what, Rooney should not be risked. Give the guy a break, our World Cup hopes depend upon him!
