Out of all the games on Saturday in the 10 o’clock hour, this one is getting the spotlight for one reason: Manchester Untied. None of the games in this time slot are particularly marquee to novice soccer fans, and Manchester United is the more recognizable brand.
This is however, a marquee match up. They’ll host Southampton, who currently sit in 4th place in the EPL table. Manchester United on the other hand currently sit in 9th place.
After heading in a goal for England against Poland with out the headband, Rooney will probably ditch the gear all together.
“I went for a header just before I scored and it got knocked off, and then I chased back, so I didn’t have time to go and get it,” Rooney said, via ESPN FC. “But it probably helped me in some ways that it was off when the ball came in, because I could direct it better.”
He added: “I think it is the first time I have headed the ball without it on, and hopefully, come the weekend, I won’t have to wear it.”
