The pressure on England to return from Brazil with some silverware this summer isn’t as heavy as it has been in the past, but the likes of Wayne Rooney will still believe he and his team mates can produce the goods.
But with the biggest event of the football calendar still a few weeks away it seems Rooney has already scored, taking a delivery of Brazilian BBQ Steak Flavour Pot Noodles and a unique ‘golden’ trophy.
The player’s favourite snack was delivered to his Cheshire home along with a personal good luck letter and bespoke trophy created entirely from his beloved Pot Noodles and complete with the inscription, “Pot Noodle Man of the Munch”.
Monique Rossi, Pot Noodle Marketing Manager said: “We know Rooney will be under huge pressure out in Brazil so we wanted to send him off a winner.
“With enough Brazilian BBQ Steak Flavour Pot Noodle to last him the entire tournament, we know Rooney will come home with a sweet taste in his mouth no matter what.
“We don’t know what the future holds for the England squad out in Rio but at least Rooney will walk away with one trophy this year.”
Known for being a fan of the snack, last year Rooney famously ordered £2,000 worth of Pot Noodle and drinks to be delivered to his tent at Glastonbury and was subsequently invited to become Pot Noodle’s official chief taster.
