Medical experts have admitted that Wayne Rooney's foot was not in fact broken and not, as Manchester United had claimed, amputed from just below the knee.

Pictures released by the Manchester United press people of Rooney with a wooden leg are now thought to have been faked after he was seen by millions of people playing football unhindered and two footed in the match against Trinidad and Tobago.

It is now thought that Manchester United deliberately misled the FA in a bid to annoy everyone.
Seeing red, red and red
In other conspiracy news, Italian officials are fuming in the belief that US players colluded with each other to try and stop Italy from winning in their Group E encounter. The claims echo similar theories surrounding their exit from Euro 2004..

Comic strip
Dutch fans were forced to strip to their pants and socks after FIFA officials objected to their sponsored orange lederhosen.
