Wayne Rooney AXED from England’s World Cup team to take on Slovenia
WAYNE ROONEY has been dumped on to the bench for England’s World Cup qualifying clash in Slovenia.
Caretaker boss Gareth Southgate has made the big decision after Three Lions fans booed the Manchester United star during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Malta at Wembley.
Southgate previously said he wouldn’t shirk the call to axe Rooney – and now he has proved it, writes John Cross in MirrorFootball.
Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier will come into the England line-up with Southgate ready to shuffle his pack.
