Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is expected to be fit for England's World Cup qualifying matches against Kazakhstan and Belarus.

The 22-year-old picked up an ankle injury in the Red Devils' 3-0 Champions League victory over Aalborg in Denmark on Tuesday.

But the injury is not thought to be serious enough to rule him out of international duty and should join up with Fabio Capello's squad for the matches on October 11 and 15.

A club spokesperson told "Wayne has an ankle injury and is considered doubtful for Saturday's game against Blackburn, but he should recover in time for England's forthcoming matches."
