Short England v. Sweden Preview.

Wayne Rooney makes his return to the England starting lineup today for their game against Sweden. With all the hype surrounding Rooney it is important to note that he hasn't scored a competitive goal for England since Euro 2004. Both teams will be trying to avoid Germany who right now are leading Ecuador 1-0 in the 22nd minute on a Miroslav Klose goal(Klose is now three goals behind Klinsmann for second all time on Germany's World Cup scoring list with 8). It should be interesting to see how long Rooney can go coming back from his injury. I think England will win this game because the Swedes have been misfiring all tournament. Nothing would make me happier than to see England lose but I don't think Sweden will be the team to do it.
