Rooney wants to wear armband

BY foxsports • October 1, 2011

The 25-year-old striker captained the Three Lions in a friendly against Brazil in Doha and has also worn the armband in the absence of more senior team-mates for his club. "I've captained both on one-off occasions but obviously to get the two jobs full-time would be a great honour for me," said Rooney in quotes reported by several national newspapers. Rooney also spoke of why England appear to do better away from Wembley. He added: "When we play away from home, the other team are playing in front of their fans urging them to go forward. "Then the game becomes a bit open and I think that's when we are at our best, so that's why we do so well away from home."
