VIDEO: Rooney to sit out England’s friendly with Spain

Wayne Rooney will sit out England’s friendly in Spain tonight (Friday) as Roy Hodgson prepares to experiment with Euro 2016 fast approaching.

The encounter at the Estadio Jose Rico Perez in Alicante promises to be an interesting test following England’s qualification cakewalk, especially as Hodgson plans to make a number of changes for this match and the equally glamorous friendly against France.

Rooney is set to start against the Euro 2016 hosts at Wembley, but the England captain will be reduced to a watching brief against Spain.
