What They're Saying

"I spoke to (Wayne Rooney) and I found him relaxed and calm. ... No problems for the game tomorrow against Montenegro."

-- England coach Fabio Capello after Wayne Rooney's father, also named Wayne, and uncle Richie Rooney were arrested Thursday as part of an investigation into betting irregularities at a Scottish Premier League game. Wayne the younger, who has not been implicated in the investigation, lines up Friday for England in a Euro 2012 qualifier. The investigation centers on bets placed on Motherwell midfielder Steve Jennings receiving a red card in a Dec. 14 game against Hearts in which Jennings, who hails from Liverpool as do the Rooneys, did indeed get red-carded.
