England manager Fabio Capello insists Wayne Rooney remains his main man ahead of Wednesday's friendly against Denmark.
The Manchester United striker last scored for England back in September 2009 and has yet to rediscover his form on the international stage since his abysmal 2010 FIFA World Cup campaign in South Africa.
But his recent club form has been an encouraging sign for Capello as the Italian prepares to place his faith in the 25-year-old once again.
Capello was quoted as saying in The Sun newspaper: "He's suffered ankle problems but, in terms of assists, he has had 12 and scored two goals last week."
The Italian added: "Sir Alex Ferguson said he was really happy with Rooney's performances this season.
"He said the reason Dimitar Berbatov has played well this year is because Rooney played well and helped him a lot.
"But, for a forward, scoring goals is important too.
"He scored twice against Aston Villa and that was really good for him. Rooney is really important but not only for Sir Alex."
