London, July 4(ANI): A new poll has blamed England striker Wayne Rooney for the Three Lions' disastrous World Cup exit.

According to the ICM poll for News of the World, a staggering 32 percent of those polled accused Rooney of being the worst England player.

The next worst was Chelsea skipper John Terry, but he polled just three per cent.

Forty-four percent want England coach Fabio Capello to go, but 56 percent say he should carry on.

England was knocked out of the World Cup following a 4-1 loss to Germany in their Round of 16 clash.

The Three Lions' 'worst ever World Cup defeat' also dashed their hopes of beating Germany at the World Cup for the first time since the 1966 final.

Capello's men, pitted in Group C against USA, Algeria and Slovenia, won only one game in the tournament.

They beat Slovenia 1-0, and drew against the US 1-1 and Algeria 0-0. (ANI)
