Euro 2016: Rooney Issues Rallying Cry For England

Euro 2016: Rooney Issues Rallying Cry For England

Wayne Rooney has called for England to raise their game as they prepare to start their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign against Switzerland.

England came in for more criticism following their lacklustre display in a 1-0 friendly victory against Norway on Wednesday, which was watched by the lowest crowd for a full international fixture at Wembley since the stadium was re-opened seven-and-a-half years ago.

Manager Roy Hodgson did not take kindly to being told that his side managed only two shots on target in that unconvincing win, which was England’s first game since they crashed out of the World Cup with a whimper after picking up only one point in the group stage.

England now face what is expected to be their most difficult game in Group E when they take on the Swiss in Basle, with the hosts having given a far better account of themselves in Brazil as they reached the last 16.
