It is just before Scotland v England in the World Cup Group game.

Rooney goes into the English changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum.

"What's up?"  he asks.

"Well,  we're having trouble getting motivated for this game.   We know it's important but it's only Scotland.  They're rubbish and we can't be bothered".

Rooney looks at them and says  "Well,  I reckon I can beat these by myself,  you lads go down the pub."

So Rooney goes out to play Scotland by himself and the rest of the English team go off for a few pints.  After a few jars they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on.  A big cheer goes up as the screen reads  "England 1 - Scotland 0  (Rooney 10minutes)".   He is beating Scotland all by himself!

Anyway, a few more pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers  "It must be full time now,  let's see how he got on".  They put the teletext on.

"Result from the Stadium
"England 1 (Rooney 10 minutes) - Scotland 1"(Angus McShannasy 89 minutes)".

They can't believe it, he has single handedly got a draw against Scotland!!

They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him.  They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sat with his head in his hands.  He refuses to look at them.

"I've let you down,  I've let you down."

"Don't be daft,  you got a draw against Scotland ,  all by yourself.  And they only scored at the very very end"

"No,  No,  I have,  I've let you down..........

I got sent off after 12 minutes"
