He's fucked. If he is fit for any of the world cup it'll be for about the semi's if they get that far (they won't)

I don't think he can play at all. Look at the time line...and then consider he simply won't be fit enough to manage anything other than 10 mins as sub even if we make it that far. I really think Sven should consider leaving him. Sad times.

so far all I've read points to him just missing the first game on the 9th.

BP - I hope that is correct...but I seriously doubt it. 3 reasons: 1) 6 weeks off seems to be the standard time I've seen everywhere. I'm assuming by off, that means completely void of training of any kind (even just running). 2) What kind of condition will he be in after 6 weeks? Will he have a couple of kick arounds and say..."yeah, it feels fine, put me in skip". Doubtful. 3) Man Utd are going to insist that he be as near 100% as possible. I hope I'm wrong....but I just don't see it.

Look at all the other players who have broken their metatarsels, they have all been out for 11-12 weeks at least.

true. The 6 weeks was from the initial report. It's not anything accurate. We have to wait a day or two to get better info. And United can say he's going to be out as long as he wants now. The season is over pretty much and it's not like they will need him in 6 weeks.

I agree with Alex Ferguson, no point in taking him unless he's fit. I say take Dean Ashton instead.

I'm with you both. I don't even think he'll be 50%, so why take up a spot when you only get to take 4 strikers anyway. Ashton might not be in the best of shape himself unfortunately.

He's broken his foot. That's pretty bad for a footballer.

What are metatarsal injuries?
Wayne Rooney's metatarsal injury

The dreaded metatarsal curse has struck some of the Premiership's top footballers in recent years.

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is the latest victim, fracturing the base of his fourth metatarsal and giving England a major injury problem ahead of the World Cup.

So what exactly are metatarsals, and how long do they take to heal?

WHAT?

Metatarsals are the five long bones in the forefoot which connect the ankle bones to those of the toes.

The first is linked to the big toe and the fifth, on the outer foot, links to the little toe.

The five metatarsals act as a unit to help share the load of the body, and they move position to cope with uneven ground.

Injuries usually occur as a result of a direct blow onto the foot, a twisting injury or over-use.

WHO?

This is the second time Rooney has broken a metatarsal.

The previous injury forced him out of England's quarter-final defeat to Portugal at the 2004 European Championships.

Other players to suffer a similar injury are Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Ashley Cole, Ledley King, David Nugent and Michael Owen.

But damage and recovery time depends on the extent of damage and which of the five metatarsals is affected.

HOW?

The middle metatarsals - which are the longest and narrowest - are usually injured as a result of wear and tear (stress fractures).

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is in agony after breaking his right foot against Chelsea
Will Rooney be fit for the World Cup?
In other words, it is caused by an ongoing process - and not one single occurrence. This is common with athletes, ballet dancers and soldiers.

Impact (eg: someone stamping on your foot) and twisting can also result in fractures.

The first, second and fifth metatarsals are the most commonly injured in sport.

The first links to the big toe and is shorter and wider than the others. It is estimated this bears up to one third of the body weight.

SYMPTOMS

Pain in the bone during exercise, bruising, swelling and tenderness in the foot when weight-bearing.

TREATMENT

Rest. The immediate response is a big "no" to all exercise and sport for 4-8 weeks.

Gary Neville (2002): Fifth metatarsal - predicted 6-8 weeks returned 21 weeks later
 
Ashley Cole (2005): Fifth metatarsal - predicted 6-8 weeks returned 12 weeks later
 
Scott Parker (2004): Second metatarsal - predicted 8 weeks returned 34 weeks later
 
Danny Murphy (2002): Second metatarsal - predicted 6 weeks returned 21 weeks later
 
Steven Gerrard (2004): Fifth metatarsal - predicted 6-8 weeks returned 10 weeks later

I just don't see it happening...and I also think it'll be a distraction to the squad and especially the other strikers if he's taken and doesnt' play at all. Sven has to put his team in next week right? Bummer.

"Sven has to put his team in next week right? Bummer. " Only a prelim 27, his 23 man squad has to be named in a few weeks. The record for healing this injury has just been broken, 31 days, injury to return, plus it's his 4th metatarsel which doesn't bear that much of the load, so it should heal quite quickly My money says he's back for the last group game

I also broke my toe on Sunday, doing Judo against a guy 5 stone heavier. You'll all be gutted to hear that I also will not be playing in the World Cup this year. What do people think about modern football boots being too lightweight? This kind of injury only seems to have cropped up in the past few years.

I think it has something to do with the boots. They're trying to make them so thin and light that it's obvious there's going to be no protection to the foot.

Apprently Rooney has 'multiple breaks' in his foot, no way will he be fit.

extra padding on top would certainly lead to less "impact" from the others players boot on the top of your foot. Could be onto something there.

I watched Sky Sports(?) and they said it was the first time Rooney wore those boots. The studs/cleats may have been one of the reasons for the injury (too deep in the pitch), etc. BTW, Hayley McQueen is hot and love that accent, too.
