Rooneyâs quick temper has got him into big Âtrouble in the past, most notably when he was sent off for lashing out Âat Montenegroâs ÂMiodrag Dzudovic in a Euro 2012 qualifier, Âmissing the opening two games at the tournament as a Âresult.
âI have got to say that Â it is part of the game,â said Hodgson.
âI have got to judge Wayne in the last 19 months, since I first met him and worked with him.
âSince I have been here, he has hardly got a yellow card, really.
âHe is very keen to play for England, he is as Âdisciplined as he can be, but, like all players, I am afraid there will probably come a time (when he Âloses his cool).
âIâm very fortunate in that weâve got senior Âplayers, of which heâs one, who do have a big Âinfluence.
âTheir thoughts on things and the way they approach things does have an influence on the group, so a Wayne ÂRooney in this sort of form would be very good.
âHe was no problem at all in the Euros. Our Âproblem in the Euros was that unfortunately he had been suspended and when he came to us, he was Âtraining when the rest of them were playing matches."
