England Players Back on the Pitch
RUSTENBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - JUNE 07: Wayne Rooney of England signals during the friendly match between England and Platinum Stars at the Moruleng Stadium on June 7, 2010 in Moruleng, South Africa.
England striker Wayne Rooney and defender Ashley Cole have resumed full training before the team's second World Cup match against Algeria.
Both players were knocking the ball about freely Tuesday after missing the previous day's session in the wake of the 1-1 draw with Group C rival United States.
Rooney got a kick to the ankle Saturday, while Cole usually takes an extra day's rest after matches. Center back Ledley King, whose groin injury is being assessed by medics on a daily basis, missed training as expected.
