It takes a lot more to wind up Wayne Rooney these days, as the striker says he has learned the hard way.

Rooney : ‘I know when people will target you and wind you up and I can cope with that much better.

‘It was a tough game in Northern Ireland and I was disappointed in the way that I handled myself in that game.

‘But I keep learning all the time and I think I am getting better and I think you can see that in my game. I want to keep playing my football to the best of my ability.

‘I love playing football but I think I am like everyone else, I hate losing and love winning. And if the time comes when I am not disappointed when things are definitely not going right, then that’s when people should worry.

‘I’m more experienced as I have been playing for a few years. The only answer is to get on with it and play your football.’
