Wayne Rooney has to choose between baby’s birth and world cup qualifying matchApril 13th, 2009 - 1:19 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 13 (ANI): England footballer is facing the toughest choice of his life, as he has to choose between his newborn’s birth and his world cup-qualifying match, as both fall on the same day.
Wayne and wife Coleen’s baby is due on October 10, the same day on which the footballer has a world cup qualifying match in Ukraine.
It is very important for Wayne to take part in the qualifying match, as it will decide whether England will secure a place in the forthcoming World Cup in South Africa or not.
“Wayne can’t believe it, the chances of them both falling on the same day are so slim,” the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.
However, being a doting husband, Wayne is keen to be with his wife on the special day.
“Obviously he’s longing for the baby to arrive and will do anything to be there for Coleen. But at the same time he knows England need him for this match. There will be a lot of pressure on him,” the source added. (ANI)
