Wayne Rooney should be fit to play in England's upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Belarus, his club, Manchester United, said on Thursday.

Rooney, 22, twisted an ankle in United's 3-0 Champions League victory over Aalborg in Denmark on Tuesday and there had been fears he could be ruled out of the England matches on October 11 and 15.

Those were allayed by a Manchester United spokesman, who said: “Wayne has an ankle injury and is considered doubtful for Saturday's game against Blackburn, but he should recover in time for England's forthcoming matches.”
