Rooney to miss Euro group matches.

Summary: Wayne Rooney will miss all of the group matches in Euro 2012 after being handed a three-match ban from Uefa.

Wayne Rooney will miss all of the group matches in Euro 2012 after being handed a three-match ban from Uefa.

The decision follows the striker's sending off in England's qualifying match against Montenegro last week.

Rooney was shown a straight red by German referee Wolfgang Stark for kicking Miodrag Dzudovoic.

England manager Fabio Capello said it was a "silly mistake" by the Manchester United player.

The 25-year-old was always in danger of receiving a three-match ban despite the Football Association submitting a dossier of evidence pleading for leniency, including a letter from Rooney himself.
