Sam Allardyce reveals news on Joe Hart and Wayne Rooney ahead of squad announcement

Allardyce also gave his backing to Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, whose place in the squad and as captain has been questioned since the Euro 2016 humiliation.

He added: “He’s England captain, he’s the most successful England player for the last decade, he’s broken every record at league level, Champions League level and international level, so yes, we should talk very much about Wayne and about how good he is, what a fantastic player he is and what a really, really good captain he is.”

Allardyce takes charge of England for the first time when they travel to Slovakia for a World Cup qualifier on September 4.
