England travel to Scandinavia to open Sweden's new national stadium, and despite the fixture falling between key matches for Manchester United, Ferguson is happy for Rooney to be selected for the match.
Ferguson said: "Wayne needs to play all the time. Sometimes we might put him on the bench but in the main he likes to play.
"If he has shown that keenness I don't see why he shouldn't."
Rooney scored in England's 1-1 draw with Poland on Wednesday night.
