RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney scored in the fifth minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday, but he was given a straight red card in the 59th minute for kicking Stewart Downing in the leg.

The foul was completely unnecessary and all but ruined the goal he scored earlier in the match. While United were able to hold on for the win, Rooney will now miss United's next three matches, which come against Everton, West Brom and Chelsea.

Rooney scored in the 53rd minute of Manchester United's surprising 2-1 loss to Swansea City at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Rooney took a flicked ball off a corner and scored on a great bicycle kick to level the game at 1-1. He took six shots on the day, with three landing on goal, but appeared to be the only real threat on the attack, as Adnan Januzaj was the only other player to take more than one shot. Rooney will look to start a scoring streak next week against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Rooney scored his first World Cup goal Thursday in England's 1-2 loss to Uruguay.

Rooney now has a goal and an assist in this World Cup, but it hasn't been enough, as England have earned zero points through two matches. They aren't out of it yet, technically, but they'll need a huge result against Costa Rica, plus some help from Italy and Uruguay, if they hope to make it out of the group stage.
