Wayne Rooney vs Metatarsal: Rooney winning on points

Wayne Rooney's been seen attempting a frickin' scissor kick in training – his recovery from that pesky foot injury would seem to be progressing nicely. He's due to fly back to Manchester on Wednesday for another scan, but it seems 90 per cent likely that he'll be cleared to return to Germany. However, volleying a ball in training and evading the attentions of a giant central defender intent on stepping on your crocked foot are two very different things.
