England Footballer Wayne Rooney leaves the terminal building at Luton Airport, Bedfordshire. The footballer will head to Switzerland with the England team amid lurid allegations about his private life.

Swollen eyes from crying, hangdog expression, newly shaved head. It’s the look of a man who is an a world of pain at home – there is no doghouse big enough for Rooney after what the tabloids printed on Sunday. Is he in the right frame of mind to play for England against Switzerland tomorrow? I have no idea, but even a distracted Rooney is a better bet than the alternatives, as Friday’s win over Bulgaria showed.
