Rooney may miss start of Premier League
Premierleague.com reported on 12th July that Rooney was forced to fly home and may miss start of Barclays Premier League season after suffering a hamstring injury.
A statement from David Moyes on Manchester United’s website says: "Following a scan this evening on a hamstring injury sustained in training, it has been decided that Wayne Rooney should return home immediately for further assessment and rehabilitation…It is anticipated he will be unavailable for selection for a month…We won't take any chances"
Manchester United will start the season against Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield on 11 August before starting to defend their Premier League title on 18 August.
England fall 6 places in FIFA world rankings.
Roy Hodgson’s team have plummeted six places to 15th in the world ranking list which was released on Thursday 4th July.
Brazil has climbed 13 places to enter the top ten at ninth after their victory over the Spain in the FIFA Confederations Cup Final. Senegal were this month’s biggest climbers climbing 25 places to rank 74th.
This should come as a blow to the England squad who have four World Cup qualifiers over the coming months but there is a beacon of optimism from some of the players.
In an article on the FA Cups website the Chelsea defender Gary Cahill says the squad is taking little notice of the rankings, having played both Spain and Brazil recently with good results. He comments:
"When things go well with England, you get the pats on the back. But when they don't go well it is like the end of the world. For the younger age groups, it is about the importance of tournament experience. Whether you do well or badly, you take positives from it. And I wouldn't read too much into the slip in the rankings. No-one from our side was going that crazy when we were third. But all of a sudden, we are 15th and supposed to be all over the place. That is not the case at all."
