Wayne Rooney is still scheduled to travel to Switzerland for England's Euro 2012 qualifier despite allegations about his private life.

The striker has been the subject of reports in the News of the World and Sunday Mirror leading to speculation about whether he will take part in Tuesday's match.

However, FA sources have indicated that no decision has yet been taken and as it stands, Rooney is expected on the flight.

The Manchester United star is an integral part of England coach Fabio Capello's team, even though it is now 11 matches since he last scored for his country.

He claimed three assists and had a hand in the other goal as England opened their qualification campaign on Friday with an impressive 4-0 win over Bulgaria at Wembley.

England take on fellow World Cup contenders Switzerland in Basle on Tuesday.
