Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has hailed England’s attitude in which he scored the winning goal during a 1-0 victory over Estonia.
It was a frustrating night for the Three Lions, but finally broke the deadlock when Rooney put in a well taken 78th minute free-kick with Estonia down to 10 men.
However despite the lacklustre performance, the United centre-forward is optimistic with the young players getting their chances in the side.
Rooney told Sky Sports: “There are options in the starting XI and options on the bench. It gives the manager a difficult decision to make.
“It’s great and there’s a lot of talk about young English players at the moment but we seem to be getting there for England and doing a good job so we’re pleased with that.
“There’s a lot of ambition and everyone wants to learn. It’s great to see in the training camp. Not just on the pitch but in the hotel – everyone’s taking in the information and wanting to get better. It’s paying off on the pitch.”
The 28-year-old will not feature in the Premier League this month after picking up a red card for a challenge on Stewart Downing when United played West Ham United back on September 27.
