Look at him.
Barely 10 minutes into the game against Suisse, which Don Fabio started him for—some say controversially—Rooney finds the back of the net from a low cross from Glen Johnson, his first goal for England in 12 months. He didn't celebrate - so either that wasn't enough to relieve the tension, or he knows it wasn't exactly the most flash goal ever...
But! I bemoan the timing of these damn allegations into his private life, where it was alleged that he was having extra marital affairs with a prostitute.
Come on, journos. He was just getting back on his feet.
It's not all bad news though... seeing as in his first match coming off these revelations, he scored a goal. Maybe we'll see how he does this weekend against Everton...
Maybe (hopefully, clutching-at-straws-ly), this'll herald the comeback of the old tenacious, tempestuous, rip-roaring Rooney that we'd all come to know and love!
... someone's gotta think positive.
