Wayne Rooney undertakes 'community service'
Manchester United striker surprises Swiss youngsters
Wayne Rooney has conducted a training session with a group of teenagers at Swiss club Payerne.
The Manchester United striker took the shocked youngsters through their paces as part of fulfilling his punishment for his sending off in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro in October 2011.
Rooney was originally handed a three-game suspension for lashing out at Miodrag Dzudovic but had it reduced to two on appeal, under the agreement he volunteer in a Uefa youth project.
The England striker was able to return for England's final group match of Euro 2012, marking his comeback with a goal. However he looked short of fitness throughout and couldn't help England progress beyond the quarter-finals, in which England were beaten by Italy on penalties.
