ROONEY IS MAIN REASON

Despite largely being overshadowed by the former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, the Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas thinks that the England international Wayne Rooney is the main reason behind United's great form this season.

HODGSON CONFIDENT

The England manager Hodgson has said that he is extremely confident that the English can win the World Cup in 2014. England have been looking for their first World Cup triumph since 1966 when they managed to lift the famous trophy in the World Cup.

Since then, they have suffered several heartbreaks in major tournaments including the European championships. In fact, the World Cup 1966 remains as the only major trophy England have lifted in recent times. There have been a lot of managers who have tried to end this trophy drought but without success.

CARROLL IS THREAT

The Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has said that Andy Carroll is a major threat when Manchester United take on West Ham at Old Trafford in the midweek Premier League action. The Liverpool striker is currently on loan at West Ham United for the rest of the season.

ROONEY HAS IMPROVED

The Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has said that he has improved a lot as a person since his famous foul-mouthed outburst at Upton Park. Rage and anger have been one of the main problems for Wayne Rooney in the early stages of his career.

Players: 

VAN PERSIE SET FOR UNITED

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie could be set for Manchester United move, but only if the Dutchman agrees wages that match figures earned by the Manchester United hitman Wayne Rooney, according to Man Utd news. The 26-year-old England international is the highest paid player at the club after he is reportedly on a contract worth around £ 200,000 per week.

FERGIE BACKS ROONEY FOR ENGLAND

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he was still surprised at the way Wayne Rooney struggled to reproduce this excellent club form for the England national team at the Euro 2012.

Despite having scored almost 30 goals in the league alone for Manchester United, Wayne Rooney managed only one goal at the Euro 2012, although he was suspended for the first two matches of the group stages. He was especially poor in the quarter-final match against Italy. This has led to criticism from many saying that Wayne Rooney does not produce his best for the England national team.

ROONEY HOPING TO BE FIT

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has said that he hopes to be fit for the Euro 2012 group match against Ukraine. It will be the final group match of the campaign for England, but Wayne Rooney will be unavailable for the first matches because he is suspended after having received a silly red card in the match against Montenegro recently.

UNITED CHASE SNEIJDER AGAIN

Wesley Sneijder and Manchester United seems to be a never ending love story that just doesn’t want to go away.

With the arrival of January and the opportunity to sign players in the winter transfer window, the tabloids are again linking the 19 times English champions with a move for the talismanic Dutch midfielder, who is one of the favourites to be named as Player of the Tournament on the euro 2012 betting markets.

10 to Watch at EURO 2012

Euro 2012 seems to currently revolve around the fortunes of Germany and Spain so Ed Malyon has highlighted a number of youngsters who could upset the form this summer.

Alan Dzagoev
Having snubbed interest from Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United as a youngster, the CSKA playmaker stayed in Moscow to gather first-team experience. Despite a slight plateau in his development he is already a vital player at international level, and if Russia are to get out of their group then it will be thanks to his goals, and perhaps more importantly, assists.
