Rooney Supports Capello's Decision to Reinstate Terry

Wayne Rooney, England National Team

Wayne Rooney say he is supportive of the move.

"It’s a massive thing to captain your country. I’ve done it once and it’s something I will never forget.

"It’s down to the manager who he picks as captain and there is nothing we can do to influence it. As captain you have to shout and be a leader. But I have said many times that John Terry is a massive leader for us, even when he is not captain."

Rooney says he is still too young to wear the armband.

"I don’t really think about being England captain. It would be a great honour for me but I think I am way too young."

Roons hopes that England continue their positive run in the Euro 2012 qualifiers, winning their fixture against Wales.

"We have come back and done quite well in the qualifying games," said Rooney.

"We will start as favourites against Wales. We are expected to win and as players we expect to win. It will be a difficult game and there will be a great atmosphere."
