Sam Allardyce on Wayne Rooney: Skipper’s England experience makes him indispensable

“He has had it at Manchester United, under many different managers, played down the right, the left, centre-forward, in behind, centre midfield.

“Mine and Wayne’s relationship, as we grow, will always be to promote him as captain but first and foremost to make sure he’s playing his best football.”

An eye-catching cameo from substitute Dele Alli added creativity to an England side struggling to break down Slovakia even after Martin Skrtel was sent off after 57 minutes.

The Spurs man will come into contention for next month’s qualifiers with Malta and Slovenia when Rooney will discover is he is to remain in midfield or play further forward.
