Wayne Rooney admits he could have been in Dubai rather than Slovenia after England axe
Temperatures will hit 36 degrees in the Middle East, somewhat hotter than in the capital of Slovenia.
But Rooney won’t be frozen out even if Gareth Southgate has turned up the heat by axing his captain for the World Cup qualifier tonight.
Rooney’s deep love of playing for his country means he’s willing to be a bit-part player for England.
Rooney, 30, said: “It would have been easy for my to walk away and say, That’s it, I’ve had enough’ - but that’s not me.
“I will not stop playing for England and then think of going to Dubai for a few days in the international break.
