Rooney injury not terribly serious

2:31 pm on 2 April 2010

The Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has left hospital in Manchester after an assessment of the ankle injury he suffered yesterday, and it seems he's still on track to play in the World Cup.

United's manager Alex Ferguson says it seems to be only a sprained ankle, and Rooney will miss no more than four weeks.

He suffered the injury in the final minute of yesterday's 2-1 Champions league loss to Bayern Munich in Germany.
