England captain Wayne Rooney has urged his side to be clinical when they face Iceland in a Euro 2016 Last 16 clash on Monday.
Despite boasting some of the best strikers in the competition England have been far from potent in front of goal as they have scored just three times in their three matches thus far, even though they have created more chances than any other side.
‘Missing chances happens in football,’ said Rooney at the England’s press conference, reports The FA.
‘But we’ve dominated all three games, which we have not always done. We will score goals eventually so long as we keep creating chances. There is no more time to be wasteful.’
Rooney was also ready to defend young Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling, who has been widely criticised for his poor form in the tournament thus far.
‘Sterling is in a fine state of mind, he’s behaving as ever,’ Rooney said. ‘There is no problem whatsoever. There is no question about his attitude.
‘Raheem has been fantastic on the training pitch. He sticks around after the training to do extra work. He is a fantastic player who can make the difference. It would be wrong to question him,’ Rooney concluded.
