England captain Wayne Rooney has stated that he will be available for selection in future for England even after the team’s shock loss to minnows Iceland in the last 16 clash at the Euro 2016 tournament on Monday 27 June.
Rooney had a poor game despite opening the scores for England from the penalty spot on the fourth minute enroute to the Three Lions suffering a 1 – 2 loss and exit the tournament, whose aftermath saw manager Roy Hodgson resign.
The Manchester United forward, who has had a prolific past with England termed the loss a sad day for the team as he sympathized with the departing manager but he insisted he will not be opting out.
“It’s a sad day for us. It’s tough. There are always upsets in football. It’s not tactics. It’s just unfortunate. We know we’re a good team. I can’t stand here and say exactly why it’s happened.
“Roy Hodgson will look back and think what he could have done differently.
“I’m still available to play. It’ll be interesting to see who comes in,” he said.
