Fabio Capello : Rooney Is Mentally Ready

England boss Fabio Capello has no doubts Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will deliver at this month’s World Cup.

Capello called for good old fashioned English spirit – and insisted that Rooney will not let his suspect temperament get the better of him.

The Three Lions chief added: “I want to see the English spirit of the team that I saw in qualification for the World Cup.

“Rooney played all the games in qualification and he had no problems with the referees.

“I hope it will be the same Rooney in the World Cup.

“I have spoken with him but Rooney is a fantastic player because he wants to win. The aggression of him is really strong, but we have to be careful – we have to respect the referees.

“Usually, the first game is hard because the expectation is really big and the pressure is big.

“But all the players are ready to play. They’re ready physically and mentally.”
