Rooney trains with England colleagues
Wayne Rooney joined his England team-mates for training on Monday ahead of this week's Wembley friendly with Scotland.
The striker has played only 45 minutes of pre-season football because of hamstring and shoulder injuries, but Manchester United gave him permission to report for duty at St George's Park.
And Rooney was out on the training pitch at 10am on Monday - half an hour before the scheduled start of the session - as preparations began in earnest for the first England-Scotland game in almost 14 years.
Rooney put in a typically combative display during the open part of the session, launching into tackles and harrying his team-mates for the ball in several drills.
Roy Hodgson has assured David Moyes he will not take a chance with Rooney's fitness on Wednesday night, and the United manager is expecting a rusty performance from his player.
Speaking after United's Community Shield success on Sunday, the Scot again insisted Rooney's absence was down to fitness and injury issues rather than ongoing speculation over his future.
"I want him to join up," Moyes said on Sunday. "He's not ready, you'll probably see that in the game. He'll probably play a chunk of the game.
"He's had no football. He's had 45 minutes against Real Betis in a friendly when he hurt his shoulder. Apart from that, since the day he got back for pre-season, he's got no match action.
"So you probably wouldn't expect somebody in that condition to be playing for a long period."
Moyes and United are adamant Rooney is not for sale and Chelsea have twice this summer failed with bids for the 27-year-old, who has been training with the reserves at Carrington to avoid physical contact.
Meanwhile, the six Manchester United players who played in the Community Shield - Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling, Wilfried Zaha, Tom Cleverley, Michael Carrick and Phil Jones - were all absent after their exertions at Wembley.
They took part in a warm-down session inside along with Everton duo Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines - who played in a friendly against Real Betis yesterday.
Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill, who have been in the United States with Chelsea, will join up with the squad tomorrow.
Eight players from the Under-21 squad, including Manchester United's Jesse Lingard and Tottenham's Tom Carroll, made up the numbers at the session, which was taken by England manager Roy Hodgson and his staff.
