Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen hit back at some of the abuse that she received on Twitter over the weekend after posting a Father's Day message to the England forward.

The Manchester United star played a role in Daniel Sturridge's goal against Italy in their World Cup Group D clash on Saturday, but was criticised for his overall performance after the match finished in 2-1 defeat in Manaus.
