Wayne Rooney

Retreats to L.A.

After Euro 2012 Loss

6/28/2012 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With a war raging back in England over his team's disappointing performance in Euro 2012, soccer stud Wayne Rooney has escaped to L.A. with his scorching hot wife.

Wayne and Coleen Rooney went on a quiet date to BOA Steakhouse in Hollywood last night ... and despite the fact he's estimated to make more than $14 MILLION per year ... the couple didn't leave in a limo ... or a private car ... they left in a plain old, regular taxi cab.

Everyone ... literally EVERYONE ... in the U.K. is still bitching about England's loss to Italy ... but instead of asking about the tournament ... or his contract with Manchester United ... or what he ate at the fancy steakhouse ... our photog asked not one, but TWO of the dumbest frickin' questions, maybe ever.

We didn't even hit the cross bar ...

Making up stories again?

No-one here in the UK is bitching about Rooney. Some of his other teammates are getting a bit of stick (but not much). Most is being reserved for the manager employed by the English FA, that no-one in the country wanted, who plays defensively with no attempt to attack, and lasted a whole 4 months at Liverpool before being sacked.

And no-one over here refers to him as a stud. We all call him Shrek, or Grannyfu%%er as when he was 18 he used to visit brothels specialising on the over 65's.

England's coach sucks. The British press is having a field day crucifying him. Very little is being said about this guy or most of the other players for that matter. BTW, I'm not a soccer fan, but I do look at the BBC web page - perhaps TMZ could do that so they won't look really stupid.

dear gawd TMZ this story of yours is complete crap, an invention which isn't new for you.

People here in the UK are not 'waging a war' because of the defeat by Italy, the Italians deserved to win, they were the better team. We disapprove of the negative tactics by the manager but there's no war here lol.

Wayne Rooney a stud? LMAO! his nickname here is Shrek. He also likes to visit certain establishments to visit ladies of a certain age, lets just put it this way, if you were 60 years of age he would say yes.

Rooney is just the dumber, uglier version of Beckham.

England didn't lose a game in the Euros. When a soccer game goes to penaltied (or a shootout as some people call them) it officially goes in the books as a draw, with one team advancing on PK's.

Nobody in England is probably giving a crap about them being knocked out though. There a few "English" who still live there!

TMZ photogs/reporters are the dumbest people in the world. Smelly soccer players? Really? That's the brain buster you ask Rooney? Do you get all your employees from middle school or do you just require a middle school education?
