Man Utd ace Rooney: England players covering cost of fans' tickets

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says the England players - in part - will help cover the cost of away fans' tickets in Poland.

For many, the England supporters' trip to Poland ended in farce with the game postpone due to a deluge.

Rooney tweeted: "The players' @EFFCharity & @FA will cover ticket costs of every fan in the stadium 2nite. Thx 2 every1 of them 4 their amazing support."

England skipper Steven Gerrard added: "We don't take their support for granted."

Fellow midfielder James Milner said: "It is a nice gesture that they will get their tickets paid for.

"Maybe they will all have better weather when they get to Brazil!"
