Rooney Unsurprisingly Announced For England Squad

Wayne Rooney is one of the central figures in the England squad as the Manchester United not surprisingly was named in Roy Hodgons’ provisional list of players which he will be taking with himself for their upcoming international friendly matches but some of those names will have to be dropped before the start of the World Cup.

England has struggled trying to get past the quarter-finals of the previous World Cups. It has been over 45 years since the English side has managed on lifting the silverware and even though the nation does indeed have talent spreading around in the entire squad, it has not been enough for them to compete against the teams all over the world.

Mick Channon is a 65 year old sportsmen who used to perform in clubs such as: Manchester City, Southampton and Newcastle United just to name a few. With the 2014 World Cup edging closer and closer, Channon voiced his opinion about England but more specifically Wayne Rooney.


Liverpool is preparing to launch an offer in the region of €38 million in order to sign Ross Barkley from Everton. The 20 years old midfielder is enjoying an amazing debut season with the Premier League club and it has already attracted the interest of one of the biggest clubs in the league but unfortunately for Brendan Rodgers, it seems like Everton has no intention of letting him go.

The head coach of Everton, Roberto Martinez revealed that he has already turned down a bid which was made by Manchester United some time ago and he will also reject offers from the club in Anfield.

He told the england italia todennäköisyys website that “in terms of the speculation, we already turned down a £50 million bid from United, so we’re not going to take £38 million from Liverpool. It’s quite enjoyable to speak about speculation. I think it shows how well our players are doing and those are the type of football compliments that we want coming our way.”

Neymar Finds Vote

Neymar is surely one of the few luckiest souls- and why not it’s the football legend Pele who is rooting for him this World CUP. According to the best footballer of all times, the young Brazilian has it in him to lead Brazil to the Cup this time.

Pele was just a nine year old kid when Brazil tragically lost in 1950 world against Uruguay. However, the soccer legend led his country towards the coveted title 8 years later in 1962 & then again in the year 1970. If Neymar gets to achieve the same feat this time, he will be able to relieve his football mad countrymen from the shattering memory of losing when Brazil hosted World last time.

With Pele’s & Neymar’s homeland hosting the most prestigious soccer tournament this time, the younger one is surely under a hell lot of pressure. However, the 22-year-old seems to be in a positive form lately which is evident from his hat-trick score against S. Africa last week.


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho publicly courted Wayne Rooney in order to get him in the summer, but Manchester United prevented the striker from joining one of their rivals. It is understood that Chelsea still retain their interest in Rooney, but they are also aware that United will not sell him.

Mourinho said ahead of the meeting with Manchester United that he expects Rooney to be sold in the summer since the striker had only 12 months left on his contract. He also said that Rooney's possible destination is likely to be abroad since United are not interested in any deal with a domestic rival.

David Moyes, though, has reacted to these claims by saying that the striker is not going to be sold in the summer. The former Everton man has come under intense pressure due to poor results, while he is also having to defend United's failings in the transfer window since his arrival.


Gerrard said: “I think everyone knows how much I rate him.
“I think we are very lucky to have him and we have to enjoy him while he’s here. For me he is one of the top four or five players in the world for sure.”

The English midfielder spoke about his partner being one of the main attractions for top European clubs and he suggested Liverpool to take advantage of the time he remains with them before actually joining another club.

Even with his infamous disciplinary problems he has faced in the past, Suarez still is a major target of Real Madrid, Arsenal and more recently Juventus as they have shown interest in signing the Uruguayan forward which caused Steven Gerrard on saying that they are lucky to have him.

Joining forces with Daniel Sturridge, Suarez has helped Liverpool on making the impressive start of the season they have been going through as they are in 2nd place with 23 points behind the table toppers Arsenal only 3 points ahead of them.
