Football: Robson's Rooney fears.
The Manchester United striker is set to have another scan on his fractured fourth metatarsal on June 7, a date brought forward by his club after a request from the Football Association.
The FA should then be able to decide whether or not the 20-year-old will be able to feature in the World Cup before the tournament begins, which will give them time to name a replacement if necessary.
And former England boss Robson feels there is just not enough healing time to allow the player to return at his brilliant best.
"The history of it says no. For him to recover in six weeks is asking a lot," Robson said.
