Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is yet to decide whether to unleash Wayne Rooney on Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday.

Ferguson has had to hold Rooney back following the striker´s recovery from the fractured foot he sustained in the opening-day Premier League draw with Reading. Now Ferguson must decide whether to start with the England man at the Jose Alvalade Stadium or persevere with Carlos Tevez, who is yet to score since his arrival at Old Trafford, or hand Louis Saha a recall.

"It is not an easy one because none of our three strikers are at 100% of the level you would want for European football," he said.
