Wayne Rooney, who recently recovered from a knee injury, may face West Ham United for the FA Cup quarter-final replay on Wednesday this week.

Manchester United’s manager Louis van Gaal was at the 1-0 Premier League Division One victory over Middlesbrough to see Rooney put in a steady display. He didn’t rule out Rooney’s potential involvement in the game against West Ham.

However, the 30-year-old player’s performance, particularly in the first half, didn’t suggest that he has returned to his top efficiency after the knee injury.


Rooney’s most impressive moment came from a Jones’ pass. Jones hit the ball to him, and he killed it expertly, swiveled, and then attempted to bang the ball over Middlesbrough goalkeeper Joe Fryer from 30 yards.

The common theory suggesting that Rooney needs to play a few games before achieving his peak fitness back could actually benefit England. Rooney last played on 13th of February this year when he suffered the knee injury in a 2-1 defeat at Sunderland.
