The Football Association have confirmed Wayne Rooney and Fabio Capello will both attend the UEFA disciplinary hearing into the red card that threatens to rule him out of the group phase of Euro 2012.

At the request of the FA, UEFA have agreed to bring the hearing forward by one day, to December 8, which will allow Rooney to make a personal appearance.

As Manchester United are in Switzerland for a Champions League encounter with Basle the previous evening and will not fly back to England until the Thursday anyway due to flying restrictions, Sir Alex Ferguson has given his blessing for Rooney to make the short trip to Nyon in order to plead his case.
