London, June 6 (ANI): The football World Cup mania seems to be catching up, with all 15 staff members at a pub in UK having changed their names after England's ace striker Wayne Rooney.

Ahead of the start of the World Cup, the managers of the Bay Horse in East Ardsley, West Yorkshire have also got a new name, and are both calling themselves Fabio Capello after the England coach.

A woman who now calls herself Wayne Rooney said everyone had agreed on the mass change of names to show their support for the England team.

"The managers wanted to do something so we all sat down and decided to do this. It's to show our support for England and show how much we're behind them," Sky News quoted the woman, as saying.

Hill said the new names had proved a hit with the pub regulars. "They think it's ace. They shout Wayne and we all turn around. They love it and think it's really funny."

She added: "It has not been a hassle at all - we could change birth certificates and driving licences, but because it is only temporary nobody is going to."

Miss Rooney said she was not sure how England would fare in South Africa, but she would be backing them all the way.

They will all remain Wayne Rooney until the end of the World Cup on July 12 when they will revert to being their former selves. (ANI)
