Vucinic fires Rooney taunt: Can the hot-head keep cool?

Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic has sought to wind-up Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney ahead of tomorrow's World Cup qualifier between Montenegro and England. Rooney goes back to Podgorica for the first time since his controversial red card that caused him to miss the opening two matches of Euro 2012 for an unprovoked kick on Miodrag Dzudovic in October 2011.

"There is no doubt that Wayne Rooney is one of the best strikers in the world but we know from the last time England played here that he can sometimes play with a hot head," said the Juventus striker.

"Our fans will not forget the red card he received and I am sure they will let him know. It is an intimidating place to come and if England want to have any chance then Rooney will need to keep a calm head.

"He is a good player but it has been proved over the years that you can get a reaction out of him. England would have no chance with 10 men and I'm sure their coach will be telling them that."

 Can Rooney stay cool - and still perform well - in Montenegro? Give us your shout below...
