Slovenia captain differs with Rooney on diving controversy
London, Sep.6 (ANI): Slovenia's football captain Robert Koren has rejected England forward Wayne Rooney's view that he is not a deliberate diver.
Koren believes the Manchester United star made a meal of a tussle for possession with defender Bostjan Cesar and earned England a penalty with a dive.
Koren, who earns his keep with West Brom, was quoted by The Mirror as saying: "This week there has been a lot of talk about diving, about Arsenal's Eduardo. Today I think Rooney went down a bit too easy and let's see if someone will say something against him."
"My personal opinion is the referee was under a little bit of pressure because of the crowd and the England team. That penalty was a bit too easy," he added.
Cesar damaged his ankle in his clash with Rooney as the England talisman hit the deck.
The centre-back will now miss their vital World Cup qualifier against Poland on Wednesday.
Slovenia keeper Samir Handanovic said: "It was no penalty. Both players were fighting for the ball. In the end Rooney literally fell into Cesar and I think it was a clear foul against our player. Maybe Rooney should have been yellow-carded." (ANI)
