England have been eliminated in the group stage of the event for the first time in 56 years – much to Rooney’s disappointment.
He posted a message on his Facebook page that said:
“Absolutely devastated to be out of the World Cup.
“Going into each game we had great belief in ourselves but unfortunately it hasn’t worked out.
“Sorry to all the fans that travelled and at home that we haven’t done better…gutted!”
Roy Hodgson’s men suffered successive 2-1 defeats to Italy and Uruguay before Costa Rica knocked them out of the tournament yesterday with a shock 1-0 win over the Azzurri.
