Sam Allardyce comments on Wayne Rooney's performance vs Slovakia [Video]

England faced Slovakia in what was a friendly game before the start of the World Cup qualifiers and barely won it, even though Slovakia was playing with ten men. Moreover, it was a first match for Sam Allardyce as a manager for the Three Lions and there is no doubt he would have liked it to go a bit better.

One of the strangest decision that Allardyce made, was putting Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney in a deep midfield positions. The 30-year-old was evidently struggling to fulfill his role in the center of the pitch, but after the final whistle of the game, Big Sam praised Rooney for the job he did, labeling him as “outstanding” and “excellent”.

However, a lot of the fans disagreed with Allardyce’s opinion and thought that it would have been better for Rooney to not have played at all in the game against Slovakia.
