Rooney trains with England squad

Rooney has suffered from poor performances this season

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's return from an ankle injury looks on track after he trained with the rest of the England squad.

Rooney, 24, has missed two games for the Red Devils but is hoping to make his comeback in Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro.

United team-mate Rio Ferdinand also joined in the warm-up at London Colney.

But recalled Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon and Manchester City's Gareth Barry missed the session.

Lennon is thought to have a sore back, while City midfielder Barry was said to be absent for personal reasons.

Defender Ferdinand returns for the first time since suffering knee ligament damage in the run-up to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.


Tuesday's qualifier with Montenegro at Wembley offers the 31-year-old a chance not only to return to the England line-up but to regain the captaincy of Fabio Capello's side. Neither are certain, however.

Ferdinand faces stiff competition from Phil Jagielka for his place after the Everton defender impressed during wins over Bulgaria and Switzerland in September, while Capello has yet to publicly state whether the captaincy will return to Ferdinand or stay with Liverpool's Steven Gerrard, who impressed in his absence.

Ferdinand's defensive partner John Terry was also involved in the session after missing England's last two matches through injury.

Bolton's 33-year-old striker Kevin Davies, who has been called into the squad for the first time, also had a run-out at London Colney.
