Possibly because this is billed as an international match, not a charity event, and prior to this announcement presumably there were some people who bought tickets to watch on the basis it was an international match. We can argue long into the night as to why on earth people part with good money to watch these "friendly" internationals, but that is another issue. The fact is some people do and if they are sold a ticket on the basis that they are going to be watching a serious game of football that is what they should expect to see.
Fuck 'em. No friendly is a serious game of football but this does some good for charity. People need to lighten up !
Sorry mate,I can`t agree.
Representing your country is the pinnacle in football.The FA are making us a laughing stock.You are also setting a precedent here.Maybe Beckham will be next?Maybe Hursty could come out of retirement,after all,he is a REAL hero.The ONLY player to score a Hat-trick in a World Cup Final and win it.Not some c*nt who has won f*ck all for his country and hasn`t even got near to winning one unlike,the boys of 90,96 and this year.
What actually winds me up even more is that Rooney is probably worth a £100 million.Why don`t he just stick his own hand in his pocket instead of relying on the public.We are good in this country at doing this while the Celebrities preach and the majority don`t even pay their proper taxes?
If Rooney wants to do a match for his charity,he could wait till the end of the season in this country and play any XI v another XI at Wembley.Fans will turn up still,especially on a weekend when we have hardly no football.
