An injured rabbit called Rooney has got his owners hopping he'll be fit in time for the World Cup.
Rooney the rabbit suffered a broken paw at around the same time as his famous footballing namesake Wayne.
Amazingly, Rooney's owners - who happen to be Manchester United fans - think he may have broken his paw during a game of football with his pal Buttons.
Rooney is now being looked after at Manchester's PetAid hospital and is making a great recovery.
The bunny's owner Paul Latham said: "Rooney loves running in the garden pushing around a football and must have been tackled a bit too vigorously by his friend, my other pet rabbit, Buttons.

"It's such a strange coincidence that our little Rooney damaged his right foot at the same time Wayne did!"
A spokesperson for the hospital said they'd advised Paul on the best exercises to get Rooney back to full fitness.
Paul added: "He's really missing his daily game of football and he's fed up of sitting on the side-line watching Buttons dribbling the ball past his hutch!"
