Man Utd ace Rooney made in-flight pledge to Capello

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney made clear to Fabio Capello he was mentally fit for England on their flight to Switzerland.

The Daily Mail says Rooney marched down the aisle on England's flight to Switzerland to assure Capello he is ready to spearhead the attack in tonight's crunch European Championship qualifier.

Capello was concerned about his best player's state of mind amid the scandal of the front page revelations about his private life.

But Rooney responded by going to the manager and telling him that he would be able to separate his professional responsibilities from his private hell and perform as he did against Bulgaria at Wembley on Friday night.
