Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Wayne Rooney can handle the fans' jeers.
Rooney suffered a negative reaction when he was replaced in England's 2-1 friendly win over Hungary at Wembley.
Ferguson said: "He's OK. No one likes getting booed, it's a fact of life. Maybe he didn't deserve it nor did he expect it. From what I hear he didn't play badly. But it won't affect him or his desire to want to play for England. I heard on the radio that his wave to the fans was like a valedictory. That's nonsense. Maybe he was just disappointed that people booed."
