The 27-year-old has been questioned after pulling out of England World Cup qualifiers as he suffered a cut via the boot of Manchester United team-mate Phil Jones.

He said on Facebook: "Some people seem to be questioning my commitment and the fact I had to pull out of the two games. I'm sure people will see the reason why I won't be able to play."

"There's nothing I would like more than to be helping the lads in the qualifiers," said Rooney.
