The new England manager Sam Allardyce has refused to be drawn on Wayne Rooney's future as England captain.
In his first press conference since taking up the job, the former Bolton and Blackburn boss said it was too early to reveal his choice for captain ahead of the World Cup qualifying campaign.
"It's far too early to make any predictions," he said. "I'm going to leave that until we meet all the players and get all the coaching staff together and plan for the internationals in September. It's my first day in, I'm getting my feet under the table and meeting everyone."
