The England national team was in Miami for a World Cup tune-up game, and its players took advantage of a basketball gym by playing some pickup ball.

Daniel Sturridge filmed his teammates putting up some ugly shots (they are soccer players, so be nice), but the highlight came when Wayne Rooney swatted Raheem Sterling.

Any basketball fan can get excited about a rejection, and Sturridge's reaction is no different.

What makes it even better is that Rooney was playing shoeless.
