UEFA will hear Wayne Rooney's appeal against a three-match ban on Thursday, but even if he is successful the England striker can still expect to be suspended for the first two games of Euro 2012.

Rooney, who was given the ban after his dismissal for violent conduct against Montenegro, will travel to UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, for the hearing after playing in Manchester United's Champions League match in Basle on Wednesday night.

England manager Fabio Capello will also travel to the appeal along with the Football Association's legal support team.
