Speaking before England’s game against Moldova, Hodgson said:

“It saddens me, this type of thing, especially for a guy like Wayne Rooney. It was a horrific injury.

“From my conversations with David [Moyes] and Wayne, it was clear straight away that we were talking about a very serious injury.

“It was a horrendous cut so to suggest you can just put a bandage over it and go and play centre forward in two games at Wayne Rooney’s quality it’s laughable really, and it’s a little bit saddening that in people’s desperation to say something, they complain about it.

“You wouldn’t find one doctor would say Wayne Rooney could play in those two games.”

Manchester United are hopeful that Wayne Rooney will be back in training and available for selection against Crystal Palace next Saturday.
