England National Football Team Update : England Tickets
"Great result for the lads last night, gutted I wasn't involved but made it a bit easier to see them get a convincing win. Hopefully we can do the same on Tuesday!," said Wayne Rooney on his facebook page.
Ukraine midfielder Yevhen Konoplyank feels Roy Hodgson's men are too dependant on Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney, who will miss Tuesday's tie with a head injury.
Roy Hodgson's men travel to Kiev as leaders of Group H.
England are without Rooney due to a severe head injury and Konoplyanka, who scored in the 1-1 draw at Wembley last September, believes Hodgson's men rely on Rooney for inspiration.
“We were unfortunate not to beat England in London, we should have won," Konoplyanka was quoted as saying in the Sunday Mirror.
“We dominated for a lot of the game and it took a late penalty for them to draw with us in their own stadium.
“They didn’t have Rooney that night and it is good news for us England won’t have him again.
“Every nation has their stand-out player, but I can’t think of any nation that are as reliant on one player as England are on Rooney.
“England are a different team when he plays. When he isn’t, you can see they are looking for inspiration from somebody else, but can’t find it."
In their last World Cup Qualifier clash the England National Football Team’s squad included Hart, Walker, Cahill, Jagielka, Cole, Lampard, Gerrard, Wilshere, Walcott, Lambert, Welbeck. Subs: Ruddy, Smalling, Baines, Carrick, Cleverley, Milner, Barkley, Defoe, Young, Sterling, Townsend, Forster.
