Ross Barkley: England still need Wayne Rooney

Everton ace Ross Barkley says Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney must go to the Euros with England.

Barkley insists his experience will be crucial to their side’s chances of success in the competition. 

“There is a lot of options,” said the Everton midfielder. “We have got a few lads who aren’t in the squad like Wazza and we have got goals all around the squad.

“That’s good for us all to see because we know the goals can come from anywhere.

“Wayne is the captain, he leads the side.

“He has the experience and he passes it on to the younger lads in the side and he helps us younger lads with the experience he has had in the past tournaments and qualifying stages.”
