Capello meets Rooney at Man Utd for England crunch talks

England coach Fabio Capello has told Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney he won't be selected for their friendlies against Spain and Sweden.

The Daily Mail says Capello visited Manchester United's Carrington training ground on Thursday to meet Rooney and discuss the consequences of his red card against Montenegro last month.

While Capello explained he had to look at other players when he could be without his leading striker for the first three matches of Euro 2012, he told Rooney that even if an appeal fails to have his ban reduced he will still be in Poland and Ukraine.

He also told Rooney an international break would do him good given how much football he has already played for United this season.
