Villa winger Young: England can handle absence of Man Utd striker Rooney

Aston Villa star Ashley Young says England can cope without Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Rooney is suspended for the Euro qualifier with Switzerland.

"Wazza is a great loss but we have got a lot of players who can come in and play in that position. I am sure the boys are raring to go to get an opportunity in the team," said Young.

"There are a lot of players fighting for positions and they are always good weeks when we prepare for games. I know everyone will prepare in the right way.

"I felt I did well in the last two games I started and we got positive results in both. Fingers crossed I will be able to continue to build on that this week and get my chance in the next game."
