The football star parties with pals after England defeat

Wayne Rooney has been snapped soaking up the sun in California following England’s quarter-final defeat in Euro 2012.

The £250,000-a-week striker performed disappointingly in the tournament, but that hasn’t put a damper on his mood. 

Wayne, 26, looked more than a little sunburnt as he drank Grey Goose cocktails and posed with footballers Ashley Cole, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Stephen Ireland at the BET Awards Summer Pool Soireein Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Helater moved on from the boozy daytime bash to Bootsy Bellows nightclub with wife Coleen Rooney, who is enjoying the swanky Hollywood lifstyle.

‘Thank you!!! Will try it,’ she Tweeted a fan who recommended an Italian restaurant, ‘1st time here!!!!Xxx.’
