Wayne Rooney was in the ITV analysis booth tonight as England's post-Germany wave of optimism ended with a 2-1 loss at home to Holland.
The excitable English fans who feel that Wayne is over the hill and out-of-form wouldn't mind seeing more of him in the pundit's chair this summer.

By contrast, other slightly more critical viewers presumably hope he is picked just so they'll be spared more of his punditry.
As ever with these major celebrity pundits, the fascination is less what they say than that they are there at all.
He was inevitably asked about his own selection prospects. He reassured people that he has never assumed he holds a divine right to be selected on the England team and believes the competition for places to be 'exciting'.
Furthermore, he cheerily disclosed that his son is nothing more than a traitor. Not seriously, of course.
Though in fairness, in terms of team selection, the young lad may have his head screwed on his shoulders.
He contended that England have the quality to play three or four different teams at a major championship. Unsurprisingly, for someone still involved with the team who were playing, his punditry was far from explosive. He got out of there without saying anything too interesting.
