The Manchester United man signalled that he wanted to come off a few minutes before full-time but Capello had used six permitted substitutions so he had to remain on the pitch but it appears his problems are no more than a sore neck.
"He said he had a small problem in his neck but it is not a problem," said Capello.
"He wanted to come off for the last two minutes but I had made all the substitutions so it was impossible to change.
"Rooney is okay. At this moment he just needs to play and find his form."
