Rooney to travel to Switzerland despite tabloid allegations

Wayne Rooney looks set to travel to Switzerland with the England squad for Tuesday’s Euro 2012 qualifier despite allegations about his private life published in a number of tabloids this morning.

The Manchester United striker has been the subject of a number of reports in the both the News of the World and the Sunday Mirror leading to rumours that he was going to pull out of Tuesday’s game.

However, the FA are reported to have told the Press Association that no final decision has been made and that Rooney is expected to travel to Basle.

The striker played in Friday’s 4-0 impressive win against Bulgaria and had a hand in all four goals despite not getting on the score sheet himself.

Fabio Capello is already without Peter Crouch for Tuesday’s game in Basle and the potential loss of Rooney would be a hammer blow to England’s chances of getting a positive result.
