Should Rooney be dropped? Everton’s Ross Barkley made an instant impact for England v Honduras [Videos]

Should Wayne Rooney be in the England team against Italy on Sunday night in Manaus?

The chorus is building loud for the Manchester United striker to start the World Cup on the bench after Rooney played another insignificant role during England’s weather-suspended match against Honduras on Saturday night.

By contrast, Everton’s Ross Barkley came on the pitch at the break, and the youngster immediately looked like England’s best player.

Barkley looked cool and clever on the ball, narrowly missing the target with a curler and he was able to make the Honduras midfield appear the average team they are with his smart feet in the middle of the surface.
