Rooney straining to get in to the action

Wayne Rooney's first taste of World Cup action was to sit on the bench and watch England grind out a scruffy win.

It is not the stuff real fairytales are made of but Rooney could be back on the pitch soon writing his own.

The Manchester United striker thrilled fans with a little post-match training session after England beat Paraguay 1-0 in Frankfurt.

He joined other squad players who did not feature against Paraguay for more light training at England's Buhlertal base today.

Those who played most of the game stayed in the hotel spa to recharge their batteries with massages and muscle rubs.

Rio Ferdinand admits Rooney, out for six weeks with a broken foot, is now straining at the leash to play.

Ferdinand said: 'He was desperate to get on the pitch. That's just the exuberance of being a young chap. If you asked any the subs if they wanted to come on they would have said yes.'

England's supporters are impatient to see Rooney, especially when the team stutters as it did in the second half against Paraguay in Frankfurt.

When Peter Crouch suffered cramp in the closing stages of the game, the fans chanted: 'Rooney, Rooney'.

Ferdinand added: 'I heard them. The fans love Wazza and he's a great player.

'He came in afterwards and said he'd pulled a ball out of the sky in front of all the fans, so he was quite happy with that.

'He's in good spirits and doing well, so fingers crossed he'll be able to play a part soon.'

Sven-Goran Eriksson has said he will not play Rooney until he is match-fit but did not rule a comeback against Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday.

He will almost certainly start with Rooney among his subs and make his mind up as the game unfolds whether or not to throw him on.

If England take control of the game, as expected against the Caribbean minnows, Eriksson could take the opportunity to give his star striker some match practice.

At the same time, he might decide not to risk Rooney against the West Indians, who applied a physical approach to their opening game against Sweden.
