Wayne Rooney: England’s “White Pele” must deliver at Brazil 2014
Wayne Rooney has been an enigma for England fans. The England superstar has been an epitome of consistency for Manchester United, but his form for his country, especially in major tournaments, has been pretty average to say the least.
Rooney burst onto the international scene in Euro 2004, where his raw energy and drive not only created a huge impressions among England fans but also gave a new hope to the nation as well. Sadly, that Wayne Rooney was never found again on the international stage.
To be honest, we will never find that boisterous Rooney ever again. He is a different player now, a truly world class player in his own right. Unlike typical English strikers, Rooney has incorporated a European flair to his game. He can play on the wings, in a No. 10 role, as a lone striker, as a supporting striker, as a central midfielder – he is the jack of all trades.
However, at 28, he should be at the peak of his abilities. This is the time for him to show his true class and inspire his nation to World Cup glory. To score goals galore in club matches is one thing, to make a difference at football’s highest platform is another. If he fires on all cylinders, England can hope. England can dream.
And those England fans who will be following him all the way to Brazil, must ensure that they enjoy the World Cup safely. The fans must know where they are going, and plan ahead for potential future games in the later stages of the tournament.
