Rooney Dropped From England’s National Team

Englands national team captain Wayne Rooney has been dropped from the team, ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Slovenia.

The Interim manager of the team Gareth Southgate said the decision was necessary and tactical but it was not as a result of the forward’s form.

Wayne Rooney is currently frustrated , he was booed by some fans at the Wembley Stadium, during their Saturday’s 2-0 win of Malta in World Cup qualifier, and has also not started for his club Manchester United, in their past three matches.

Though he has been dropped, Rooney will retain the captaincy of the team, but Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will be the on-field skipper when England play Slovenia on Tuesday.
