Wayne Rooney will be fit for England selection, according to David Moyes
Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed Wayne Rooney
will be fit for selection for England's crucial World Cup double-header against Montenegro and Poland.
Rooney missed Wednesday night's 1-1 Champions League draw with Shakhtar Donetsk after suffering a kick on his shin from fellow Three Lion and United team-mate Danny Welbeck in training on Tuesday.
With Roy Hodgson due to name his squad on Thursday afternoon for the games that will determine whether England make it to Brazil next year, he will have no doubt be worried as to the striker’s condition.
However, those fears have already been dispelled, with Moyes confirming he expects Rooney to be available for Saturday's Premier League trip to Sunderland.
Moyes said: "Wayne Rooney will be OK for Saturday."
"He clashed shins with Danny Welbeck
. At a push we probably could have risked him but we decided not to."
The England squad will be confirmed at 1.30pm exclusively on TheFA.com.
