  • As an England fan, I feel that one of the most disappointing aspects of the failure of my country to do very well in the 2010 World Cup was the utter lack of impact from Wayne Rooney, a man who not so very many months ago was terrorising club defences for Manchester United, and who was widely considered to be in the best form of his life
  • In South Africa, however, I thought he was so poor that he probably should not even have played the full 90 minutes in any game
  • I don't think that the 4-4-2 formation was at fault
  • Rather, I think that Rooney simply lost form after returning from his ankle injury a few months ago, in the way that players sometimes do after such a happening
  • Rooney is still young enough to come back, and I expect to see him in the team in 2014, but I was very disappointed with his showing this time around

      As an England fan, I feel that one of the most disappointing aspects of the failure of my country to do very well in the 2010 World Cup was the utter lack of impact from Wayne Rooney, a man who not so very many months ago was terrorising club defences for Manchester United, and who was widely considered to be in the

      best form of his life. In South Africa, however, I thought he was so poor that he probably should not even have played the full 90 minutes in any game.

      Rooney is not quite an old-fashioned, Alan Shearer-type centre forward, even if sometimes he appears like one, but as a spearhead he is usually very effective when running at the defence. In South Africa he was anonymous at best and actively bad at worst. I never had much confidence when he got the ball that he would keep it, or even if he did that he would do anything useful with it. He was beaten and tackled much too easily again and again, but the coach didn’t seem to have a plan B for such ...

      an occurrence.

      I don’t think that the 4-4-2 formation was at fault. Rather, I think that Rooney simply lost form after returning from his ankle injury a few months ago, in the way that players sometimes do after such a happening. Unfortunately, with Theo Walcott having been left at home, there was no real alternative - Emile Heskey was hardly going to score

      a hatful, and Peter Crouch is more of an impact substitute than a like-for-like replacement. Rooney is still young enough to come back, and I expect to see him in the team in 2014, but I was very disappointed with his showing this time around. For much of the time, he didn’t really justify his place in the squad, let alone the team.
