    The Good and VERY BAD of Rooney

    Everyone is being very harsh on Rooney.

    The penalty should not have been a penalty, as it was outside the box. People question what what he doing?

    He was doing what he usually does, defend for the team, an attribute that is limited among strikers these days.

    The second goal was Robinson's fault, but as Rooney plays for Man U. Only his fault, which was rather unlucky, is highlighted.

    • As I said in another thread what was Rooney suppose to do, let the player run in to the penalty area unopposed? Now if he had done that and Russia had scored then it would have been his fault. The fact is Rooney did nothing wrong, it wasn`t a penalty and probably wasn`t even a foul. The ref gave in to pressure from the crowd and wrongly awarded a penalty and the Rooney haters try and use it as a stick to beat him with. Which just shows how petty minded they are.
