England coach Fabio Capello has hinted he intends to take Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney to the Euros.

Capello indicated yesterday Rooney would be part of his plans.

"The young players are really good and ready to play with the seniors, and the experience of the seniors is really important," said Capello.

"During the games we need some leaders, people that know something.

"Jack Wilshere is incredible because he is so young. We also need the experience of John Terry, Rio Ferdinand and Scott Parker.

"You need this kind of player, plus Rooney, I hope."
