London, may 15 (ANI): In a grim advertisement showing how life could change if he flops at the World Cup, Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney is seen quitting football, growing a belly and living in squalor, unable to accept his shattered dream.

The Nike commercial, which is to hit screens across the globe next Saturday, features a host of aces, including Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Ronaldinho (A C Milan) and Fabregas (Arsenal).

According to The Sun, the opening scenes of the advertisement see the 24-year-old Man United hero slipping a pass to Theo Walcott in the dying seconds of a World Cup game against France - with the score 1-1.

But Franck Ribery intercepts, ending hopes of England glory.

Wayne drops to his knees, deep in thought as he considers his life hitting rock bottom.

He puts on weight, living alone in his caravan with a ginger beard and gold sovereign rings. (ANI)
