Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJune 14, 2014

England, down 2-1 against Italy in their opening match of the 2014 World Cup, were in need of some magic when they won a corner kick with 15 minutes to play.

Wayne Rooney stepped up.

The result? 

It's hard to recall a worse corner. 

A new low for Rooney. Gif that corner immediately.
