Worth it? No. While he’s a solid card, I’d only be completing this SBC if you’re a die hard Rooney fan. The lack of good Championship links seriously limit the ways you can get Rooney into your side.

Wayne Rooney In-Game Stats & Player Analysis

Rooney In Game Stats

As you’d expect from a Rooney card, going forward, he has all the stats you’d expect, with top shooting, dribbling, and physicality.

His pace is exceptional for a Rooney flashback, with 89 Acceleration, 89 Sprint Speed, and when coupled with his 92 Balance, 98 Reactions and 95 Ball Control, expect him to feel very quick on the ball.

His shooting, as you’d expect, is exceptional, with 90 in all stats, with standouts being 96 Shot Power, 94 Volleys, as well as 99 Composure. 

He’d work very well as a midfield general, with 90 Short Passing, 91 Long Passing and 91 Vision, as well as usable defending stats.

Physically, the card shines, with 90 Strength, 85 Jumping and 93 Aggression, meaning Rooney will be very difficult to knock off the ball.

Rooney Squad Links

Rooney Squad Links

Unfortunately, being in the Championship does severely limit Rooney’s linkability, with the only usable strong link (outside of icons) being the Championship League SBC 84 Phillips.

Obviously, being English, you can fit him into a squad by surrounding him with English players, of which you have plenty of choice, including Shapeshifter 88 Alexander-Arnold and Future Stars 90 Greenwood.
