England coach Roy Hodgson says he won't pressure Manchester United boss David Moyes to rest Wayne Rooney during the season.

Moyes says he has no plans to rest Rooney, and Hodgson accepts he is powerless to prevent the player playing all the way through to May ahead of the World Cup.

"There is nothing I can do about it," he said.

"If you said to me you can tailor what they do (during the season), I would be delighted but I can't. I have just got to hope for the best."
