Rooney Banned For Group Stages Of The Euro-SB Nation Soccer

Let me let  you in on a secret of mine. I love Wayne Rooney. I love everything about him. He plays the way the game is meant to be played, hard nosed AND with quality. Does it get him in trouble every now and then? Sure, but I'd take a team of Rooneys over a team of Ronaldos every day.
