Rooney urges mates not to repeat his Euro ’12 mistake
Wayne Rooney on Monday urged his England teammates to learn from the mistake he had committed by going on a family trip to Las Vegas just before Euro 2012.
England <g data-gr-id="13">have</g> qualified for the tournament to be held in 2016 and Rooney says last time around he was affected by the holiday in Las Vegas and could not deliver his best.
The 29-year-old was suspended for the first two games of Euro 2012. “I went on holiday, which I regret. I thought it was no problem and now I know I shouldn’t have done it,” Rooney was quoted as saying by BBC. The Manchester United striker converted a dubious penalty in a 6-0 victory against San Marino on Saturday which helped him to equal Bobby Charlton’s record of 49 goals in England colours.
