Croatia chief scout heaps praise on Man Utd's "phenomenal" Rooney

Croatia chief scout Goran Vucevic has gushed with praise for Manchester United's England ace Wayne Rooney. Ahead of tomorrow night's World Cup qualifier, Vucevic told the Daily Express: "Rooney is England's real danger.

"He is literally wild for the entire 90 minutes of the game and constantly seeking contact and duels. He is technically phenomenal, agile and awkward to play against.

"Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard are the key for Rooney to get the ball, so we must be careful of them.

"The right-hand side is not so crucial - whether it is Shaun Wright-Phillips or someone else.

"Of course, England under (Fabio) Capello are very different from McClaren's England. The atmosphere within the camp and their psychology is different, and they are more disciplined.

"It seems England simply cannot lose at the moment and that was shown against Holland, when they came back from 2-0 down.

"England are very dangerous but I would not say that the defence is invulnerable."
