Wayne Rooney is set to make his Manchester United return in Lisbon on Wednesday after he made Sir Alex Ferguson´s squad for the Champions League encounter with Sporting.

The United striker has been missing since fracturing his foot on the opening day of the season against Reading and has been pestering Ferguson to play ever since.

After missing out on Saturday´s win at Everton, it seems Rooney will now get his wish as the Red Devils look to go one better than last season´s semi-finals spot.
