'What does he actually do?' - Rooney slammed by England fans for Malta display

Gareth Southgate kept faith with his captain despite his disappointing form for Manchester United but he did not do much to change the minds of his critics at Wembley


After being relegated to the bench by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, Wayne Rooney started for England in their World Cup qualifier against Malta on Saturday.

Despite the show of faith from interim boss Gareth Southgate, however, the 30-year-old did not do a great deal to change the minds of those who believe he is past his best at Wembley.

Goals from Daniel Sturridge and Dele Alli ensured England moved into a commanding position but Rooney's performance still drew the ire of many Three Lions fans on Twitter.
