England coach Roy Hodgson admits his strikers have given him a headache after victory over Sweden.
Hodgson's bold decision to select Andy Carroll paid off when the Liverpool man put England ahead with a first-half header.
The result means a draw will do in Donetsk against Ukraine.
However, any thought that Manchester United striker Rooney might have a job getting his place back after serving his two-match suspension was quickly dispelled.
"I welcome those kind of selection problems," said Hodgson.
"I was really pleased with the performance of the front players.
"But Wayne Rooney is a special player and, frankly, it will be hard to leave him out.
"I'm afraid you expect him to get back into the team when the suspension is served."
