  • [8] Roy Keane thinks Rooney could use a frustrating MUFC season to help England

    "He's not going into the World Cup on the back of a top season at United in terms of winning trophies, and you could say that for a lot of the England players,"

    "I think Wayne has had a decent enough season himself, though, and it might actually help him.

    "He might use that frustration he has had at United this year to the benefit of England."

    "There has been that expectation of Wayne going into big tournaments and it has not happened, for one reason or another - but it is certainly not for lack of effort,"

    "Injuries, off the field stuff... in South Africa 2010 there was allegedly a lot of unrest in the camp."

    "He has not peaked at the right times at big tournaments.

    "A couple of times he's gone into them on the back of injuries, there have been issues off the field.

    "England need Wayne to have a decent World Cup, like you need any attacking player in the big teams."

    "Roy Hodgson's skills are going to be tested in that way, having a happy group," Keane said.

    "That is why I think he has left out one or two senior players who might not be in the starting XI.

    "He's gone for younger players who might bring a different type of energy, and, if they are left out, they won't bring any kind of negativity.

    "Roy has the experience to manage all that. They look like a decent group and there is a good balance."
