Wayne Rooney's former Man United team-mate, Roy Keane, has expressed fears that England's star striker may struggle with boredom at Euro 2012 during his two game suspension.
Wazza was dismissed and banned after lashing out against Montenegro in England's last qualfying fixture and is only available to Roy Hodgson for England's last group game.
Here at talkSPORT, we've already forgiven him - which is why we've started donning England colours, pumping out classics such as Euro '88 anthem 'All the Way' and coming up with a shortlist of suggestions on how to keep Rooney entertained while his team-mates brush aside France and Sweden...
Work as Stewart Downing's official ball-boy
Rio Ferdinand's omission aside, the big surprise in Roy Hodgson's Euro 2012 squad was the inclusion of Liverpool's hapless winger Stewart Downing, who was mystifyingly selected following a 36 game Premier League campaign for the Reds without scoring or creating a single goal. On that basis, Downing will be crying out for a nippy non-participant in the group to fetch his wayward crosses and shots, like this shocking effort during Hodgson's first England training session.
Practice penalties non-stop
History suggests the most productive activity for Rooney will be hours of penalty practice, considering the Three Lions were dumped out of Italia '90, Euro 96, France '98, Euro 2004 and Germany 2006 after shoot-out defeats. As a nation, England haven't experienced any 12-yard heartache for six years which suggests, unfortunately, another painful experience is looming on the horizon. The least Rooney can do is make sure at least one of England's players tucks his away!
Undertake an anger management course
It's worth remembering that Rooney finds himself on the sidelines for inexplicably lashing out in Montenegro, towards the end of England's final Euro qualifying fixture - just like he did against Portugal in 2006. Both incidents resulted in costly dismissals and there's a chance it could happen again at Euro 2012 if this big stage temper isn't addressed properly - Rooney's no Joey Barton, but that hardly makes you an angel, does it? A course of anger management would also come in handy if John Terry decides to nick Rooney's lunch as the Man United man prepares to take his first bite!
Tune into live coverage of Euro 2012 on talkSPORT 1089/1053AM
Before Wayne's first opportunity to kick a ball in anger (we said 'ball'), Poland and Ukraine will have hosted a staggering 22 group games. The great news for Wazza is that he can listen to live coverage of every single one on his favourite radio station, talkSPORT! Back in January, Rooney tweeted: "Great to have Keys and Gray back. Love the show. Listen every day on my way to work." Stay tuned, Wayne... We love you too!
Work as a pundit and slag off Gary Neville
Gary Neville graced our screens as a TV pundit last season, providing expert in-depth analysis and, on occasions, scrutinising the performances of top flight players. With Neville working on England's coaching staff and Rooney twiddling his thumbs for two games it's time for some role reversal. Instead, let's have Rooney emulating Nev's 'scoregasm' commentary from the Champions League semi - "Ooooooooooooh!" - when England pull off a backs-to-the-wall victory over France. Who wouldn't want to hear Wazza in the throes of ecstacy?
