Manchester United star Wayne Rooney will be fit to play in England's crucial World Cup qualifiers next week.  

The news has been confirmed by United manager David Moyes after the striker missed last night's Champions League draw against Shakhtar Donetsk. 

United boss Moyes said: "Wayne will be okay for Saturday (United’s Premier League visit to Sunderland.)

"He clashed shins with Danny Welbeck (in training), at a push we probably could have risked him but we decided not to."

England face a Wembley double-header against Montenegro and Poland, as they look to confirm their place at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil. 

Rooney missed England's 0-0 draw in Ukraine last month after suffering an horrific head injury whilst in United training.

England manager Roy Hodgson names his squad later today, with return of the England star striker coming as a timely boost.
