Rooney backed for England captaincy

Phil Jagielka has tipped new Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney for the England captaincy, believing the forward to be "a great choice" to lead both his country and his club.

- Okwonga: Captain Rooney -- a pragmatic choice

Rooney, 28, was confirmed as the new United captain by manager Louis van Gaal on Tuesday and replaces Nemanja Vidic, who left to join Inter Milan earlier this summer.

England are also looking for a new captain following Steven Gerrard's decision to announce his international retirement last month after winning 114 caps for the Three Lions.

Jagielka could be one of the contenders for Roy Hodgson -- due to being a regular in the team as well as captaining Everton -- although he feels Rooney is the likeliest to take the armband.

"It looks like Wayne's going to be the main candidate for it, so I don't see why not," Jagielka told reporters.

"If you look at the way he's matured over the last few years, obviously there are games where he probably does get a little too heated up, but that's what we love about the way he plays: his passion. And I'm sure the England fans would love that as well.

"I think it's definitely a good decision for Manchester United to make him captain and I think the way he's progressed over the last few years, settling down with a family and all sorts, I think he'd be a great choice as England captain."

Rooney has scored 40 goals in 95 games for England since making his debut in 2003 and Hodgson hinted this week that he is the likely replacement for Gerrard, although he is also considering Frank Lampard.
