England striker Wayne Rooney has apologised for criticising fans who jeered the team following the 0-0 World Cup draw with Algeria on Friday night.

The incredible ending to England's appalling World Cup display came after supporters turned on the team as they left the pitch.

Rooney was unhappy with unhappy with the fans' reaction and, as he made his way off the field, the Manchester United striker snarled at an ITV camera man saying: "It's nice to see your home fans booing you. That's what loyal support is."

He then muttered a swear word as he walked towards the dressing room.

But after reflecting on his conduct overnight, Rooney now admits he regrets the outburst.

He said in a statement issued by the Football Association: "Last night, on reflection I said things in the heat of the moment that came out of frustration of both our performance and the result.

"For my part I apologise for any offence caused by my actions at the end of the game."

Friday's goalless draw, coming after a 1-1 draw with the USA in the opening Group C game, leaves the Three Lions needing a positive result from Wednesday's final game against group leaders Slovenia to progress to the knock-out stages.
