England manager Fabio Capello has urged Wayne Rooney to relax his "obsession with scoring" if he is to become a prolific marksman for his country.

Capello is a huge admirer of the Manchester United star and has tipped him to eventually become England captain.

But the Italian believes the one area Rooney has to improve is his finishing power and said: "I have spoken to Rooney and technically he is very strong and good. What he needs to do is be more relaxed in front of goal."
