Wayne Rooney is not injured - Hodgson

Roy Hodgson has claimed that Wayne Rooney is not suffering from “a physical injury” after watching him take a full part in England training on Monday morning.

The Manchester United striker, 27, has not been fully involved with his club’s pre-season programme due to a shoulder injury and was not included in the squad for the 2-0 win against Wigan in the Community Shield on Sunday.

However, Rooney arrived early for training and completed the session without aggravating any existing knocks.

When asked about the player’s performance at a press conference, Hodgson said: "Good, just as I expected really. It's difficult to assess with the naked eye how match-fit people are, but there's no doubt in my mind that he's not suffering from a physical injury.

"It will be interesting to get the feedback from our training sessions and we can see how he looks. We'll speak with Wayne tomorrow morning."

Hodgson added: "Since he's got over the injuries he's not been able to train as intensively as we did today, so we'll see how that pans out. He tells me that he's been training on his own while Manchester United have had games, on some fitness work, but he hasn't had a chance to do a session like we had today where he was involved in functional aspects of play.

"I expect him to tell me that everything was fine and I expect him to get up fit and ready to go tomorrow morning as well."

Rooney’s future at United remains in doubt amid continued interest from Chelsea. Hodgson believes it would be in the best interests of the national team and the player if his future was clarified sooner rather than later.

"It would be very nice if [his future is determined] both for him and his club, and of course my hope and desire is that will happen," Hodgson said. "In my year and a bit as national team manager I've been faced with the situation where players are not necessarily always playing in their team, but because they have the qualities we're looking for, they still manage to be selected.

"I'm hoping that will be the case with Wayne, but I'm not prepared to make any statements that if he's not playing for a club side he can't be considered for England."
