Metatarsal Watch! Wayne Rooney making 'perfect recovery'. WTF?

Little confused here… Roo took almost three months to recover from his last metatarsal injury, suffered during Euro 2004, but now England doctor Leif Sward thinks that he stands a good chance of recovering from multiple fractures after just six weeks. What gives? I guess we'll find out on 25 May, when Rooney has his make-or-break MRI scan.

In other news, Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has replaced injury-stricken Luke Young on England's five-man stand-by list.
