image for Euro 2012: Wayne Rooney 'to miss Final'
Two yellows is equivalent to one red in the Euro's.

As England prepare for the quarter-final clash with Italy in Kiev on Sunday, a senior figure within Club England has revealed that Roy Hodgson is having kittens about the prospect of match-winner Wayne Rooney missing the final.

The Man United star missed the first two group games of the tournament against France and Sweden through suspension, picked up when he was sent off in the final qualifying match against Montenegro last Ocotber. He made a successful return to the team by scoring the only goal against Ukraine as England topped Group D.

However, Hodgson is worried a yellow card against Italy on Sunday, followed by a second yellow in the semi-final against Germany or Greece would rule out Rooney for the Final, in an eerie repeat of the 1990 semi-final when Gazza was booked for the second time in the tournament and would have missed the final if England had made it.

The source told our reporter "Well, I suppose Hodgson will have to go back to the earlier formation of Carroll and Welbeck up front - but missing a talisman like Rooney could be crucial in a final against World and European Champions Spain. Not that he's counting his chickens and getting carried away or anything. Its definitely one game at a time - oh by the way - do you know the weather forecast in Kiev for July 1st?".
