A cheeky advert for Teletext Holidays poked fun at want-away Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney during last night’s match between Brazil and England.

The hoardings read: “Desperate to get away like Wayne?”

Rooney himself would not have been offended by the advert. It did not appear in the stadium and was instead overlaid on top of the real-life Brazilian adverts for the benefit of the UK television audience.
