Man Utd's Rooney not looking for Montenegro revenge

Wayne Rooney insists he will not be looking for revenge when England next meets Montenegro.

The Three Lions take on the Montenegrins in World Cup qualifying in March next year and after getting sent off in Podgorica prior to Euro2012, you could excuse the Manchester United striker for having his own agenda.

But Rooney says that he is solely focused on helping his country record maximum points as they look to continue their solid beginning to qualification on the road to Rio.

"I won't be looking for revenge against Montenegro, definitely not. That's gone for me. It's not something I think about any more," he said.

"It will be a tough game for the team, so I can't go out there thinking it's time to put things right that have gone before.

"We have to go there as a team and try and get the points. That's what I will be focusing on."
