Wayne Rooney on Saturday apologised to England fans for the country’s disastrous exit from the World Cup after two defeats.
The 28-year-old Manchester United striker said on his Facebook page that he was “absolutely devastated” and “gutted” by the losses to Italy and Uruguay in Group D.
Costa Rica beat Italy 1-0 on Friday, snuffing out any remaining hope for England.
“Sorry to all the fans that travelled and at home that we haven’t done better,” said Rooney, who did manage to get his first World Cup finals goal in the Uruguay game.
“Going into each game we had great belief in ourselves but unfortunately it hasn’t worked out,” he added.
