England manager Roy Hodgson confirmed Wayne Rooney would captain his country in their World Cup qualifier against San Marino.
Usual captain Steven Gerrard is suspended for the match, while vice-captain Frank Lampard - who had been in line to lead the team out - suffered a small injury in training.
I enjoy working with Wayne, we had a good Euros.
I was disappointed of course when he got that terrible gash and I was even worried it would keep him out not only of the September games but also of the October games.
Luckily he has made a quick recovery and will certainly captain the team in the first one.
