[ENGLAND] Wayne Rooney won't likely be playing any more this season for Manchester United because of a groin injury but he should be fit to play for England at the World Cup.

Rooney's latest injury occurred Thursday when he hurt his groin in training.

He had scored 34 goals for Manchester United this season and just returned after suffering ankle injuries in back-to-back games against Bayern Munich.

"I think he'll probably take two to three weeks to recover,'' United manager Alex Ferguson said. "We'll try to get him back. He'll obviously be desperate to get back himself. We'll just have to wait and see.''

In United's 3-1 win over Tottenham, England did get good news as Rooney's England teammate, right winger Aaron Lennon, returned to action, playing 25 minutes for Spurs at Old Trafford, after four months out due to a groin injury.
