The England football manager Fabio Capello has praised Wayne Rooney after he answered questions about his private life by scoring the opener in England's 3-1 win over Switzerland.

There were doubts in England as to whether Rooney would be in the right frame of mind to play in the Euro 2012 qualifier after revelations he cheated on wife Coleen by sleeping with a prostitute.

The win leaves England top of their group with six points from two games.
