Can Rooney build on a promising England performance?

Rooney scores
Watching Wayne Rooney at Wembley on Tuesday, you would never have guessed the troubles he has had this season. He looked bright and lively surrounded by, well, bright and lively youngsters in the England team, turning Laurent Koscielny inside out early on before scoring a technically testing volley as well as adding the assit for Dele Alli’s goal.
There were of course extreme extenuating circumstances that could more than sufficiently account for any problems France might have had, but Rooney should take confidence from a performance that was rather unlike him this season. Whether it is Louis van Gaal’s tactics causing him problems is another issue, but the Manchester United captain should see this weekend as an opportunity.
