England's Rooney back to Germany
font size    

England's striker Wayne Rooney flew back to Germany on Wednesday evening to join his team in the World Cup finals after consulting with doctors in Manchester.

Although the doctors hasn't announced any decision on whether the 20-year-old star could play in the World Cup matches, Rooney left the hospital earlier with a smile after hearing from doctors the results of the scan on his injured foot.

But England's Footfall Association sources said that Rooney was given all clear to re-join England Squad.

Rooney returned from England's training camp in Baden-baden, Germany, to Manchester just before midday for another scan on his fractured right foot by a private jet, with England's team doctor Leif Sward.

On Tuesday morning, Rooney took part in training in Buhlertal, Germany, and volunteered for extra shooting, penalty-taking and heading practice in the afternoon.

"I am confident and Wayne is 300 percent even more confident," said Sven-Goran Eriksson, England's head coach, after Tuesday's training.

Rooney is ready to re-join the squad to continue his rehabilitation. England will have its opening game against Paraguay on Friday.
