Beckham wasn't a kid, and Rooney is not nearly 30. Beckham was 23 when he got sent off, Rooney is 26 now. Hardly a world of difference.|
My point was that I bet if this forum was around in 1998, Beckham would be the scapegoat, because he sure as hell was around the country at the time. Remember the effigies?
Rooney has worked very hard to curb that side of his game, and he's not being talked up as captaincy material by Hodgson for nothing.
