Man Utd striker Rooney travelling with England despite private life concern

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is expected to travel with England's squad to Switzerland, despite allegations about his private life.

The Sunday Mirror says the striker has been the subject of reports in the News of the World and Sunday Mirror leading to speculation about whether he will take part in Tuesday's match.

However, FA sources have indicated that no decision has yet been taken and as it stands, Rooney is expected on the flight.

The Manchester United star is an integral part of England coach Fabio Capello's team, even though it is now 11 matches since he last scored for his country.

He claimed three assists and had a hand in the other goal as England opened their qualification campaign on Friday with an impressive 4-0 win over Bulgaria at Wembley.

England take on fellow World Cup contenders Switzerland in Basle on Tuesday.
