Manchester United striker looked rusty against Peru and may be left out of Wednesday's friendly in Miami

Roy Hodgson is considering road-testing his England side without Wayne Rooney against Ecuador in Miami on Wednesday.

England manager Hodgson and his squad flew out to Miami on Sunday for two World Cup warm-up games against Ecuador and Honduras, ahead of travelling on to Brazil.

Rooney played his first game for a month in the Wembley send-off victory over Peru and the plan was for him to only start against Honduras in Miami.

The Manchester United striker looked rusty against Peru and it now remains to be seen whether Hodgson sticks to his original plan or changes his approach to help Rooney find full match fitness.

Hodgson has consistently backed Rooney over the past fortnight, but has also insisted he will be brave enough to drop the 28-year-old if it becomes necessary.

Rooney is yet to score a goal in a World Cup finals and has also seen striker Daniel Sturridge hit form at just the right time for England.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Phil Jones have already been told they will start against Ecuador.

Raheem Sterling could be handed a start after coming on as a substitute against Peru and Ross Barkley will hope to get the chance to impress.
