Wayne Rooney wins EFT award
Cesc Fabregas, Elano, Frank Lampard, Kenwyne Jones, Didier Drogba, Carlos Tevez and Benni McCarthy all featured in the voting but in the end the recipient of our award for EFT player of the month for October 2007 is Manchester United's centre-forward, Wayne Rooney,
Wayne Rooney featured heavily as Man Utd scored four goals in four consecutive matches in October to gather great momentum for the rest of this season. Add a superb goal for England in Russia and Rooney is a worthy winner of our award. He also becomes our first three-time winner.
A month lay-off now follows for Rooney due to an ankle injury picked up in training on Friday. This does not bode well for England's already precarious hopes of qualifying for Euro 2008 - as the last several weeks has clearly shown an in-form Rooney is a plus for any team.
