You could never accuse Wayne Rooney of not being patriotic and today he proved beyond all doubt how much he loves his Queen & Country.
Playing in the friendly game against Belgium, the last before England go to the European Championships, Wayne explained.
‘Naturally I’m gutted I’m missing the first two games, but with this friendly being on over the Jubilee Weekend, I knew I could let the Queen and Country know how much we appreciate them. We’ll do the best we can to bring the trophy home for our Queen. I’ve chosen this special curly hairpiece for today to represent the togetherness of the British Isles. The Queen is our focal point, I love Royalty me, and I love the Queen. She’s brilliant. When you have curly hair, all the curls twist round each other, and that’s how I see England. Full of different cultures all twisted around each other,all under the same flag. God save Our Gracious Queen. Happy Jubilee Day Maam.’
Speaking after the game which England won 1-0,Wayne’s proud wife Colleen said, ‘ I`m really proud.’
