Wayne Rooney withdraws from England squad

Monday 14 Nov 2016

Wayne Rooney has left the England squad and returned to Manchester United.

 The striker sat out this morning’s session at Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground as a precaution due to a minor knee injury.

However, with Gareth Southgate already set to rest his captain for the visit of Spain to Wembley Stadium tomorrow night, Rooney has been allowed to return to his club for further assessment.

Left-back Ryan Bertrand, who also missed today’s session, will remain with the Three Lions squad and stays in contention for the fixture against Julen Lopetegui’s side.
