Wayne Rooney remaining positive despite England disappointment

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney says England have had an "extremely successful" 2013 despite it ending in disappointment last night.

The Three Lions suffered the second consecutive loss at Wembley for the first time since 1977 last night as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against a weakened Germany side.

Last Friday saw an even more disappointing result, after England were humbled 2-0 by Chile, capping a disappointing end to the calendar year for the national team.

But Manchester United and England striker Rooney is staying positive and insists that despite not getting the results they wanted over the international break, it has been a successful year for English football overall.

He posted on his official Facebook page: "Not the result we were looking for last night.

"On a positive note, it's been an extremely successful year with the England team.

"We achieved our goal of qualification and we'll do everything we can to prepare in the right way ahead of the World Cup."

Rooney now heads back to Manchester United as he continues to help lift Manchester United back in to title contention.

His last domestic performance, a man-of-the-match display against Arsenal, helped the Red Devils to within five points of the Gunners and Rooney says he is looking forward to reuniting with his Manchester United team mates.

"Looking forward to heading back to Manchester now and getting back to training with the United lads," he finished.
