Do you remember when Portugal came from a goal down to push the game into extra time and ultimately beat England on penalties in the quarter finals of the European championship in 2004?
Do you also remember how Portugal held England to a goalless draw for 120 minutes before humiliating them 3-1 on spot kicks during the 2006 World Cup in Germany?
These are special moments for Portuguese fans but for England’s Wayne Rooney, all these memories are a nightmare. The Manchester United number 10 publicly revealed his wish against Portugal who are on the brink of missing out of the World Cup in South Africa.
Wayne Rooney said:
“It would be nice to see Portugal not there [in the finals] because in the last two tournaments, they’ve knocked us out.”
Wayne Rooney, meanwhile, is a happy and relax man. The 23-year-old is assured of playing at the World Cup after England qualified for the finals earlier in September.
