Patriotic parrot cheers for England team (Video)

275x250.jpgA patriotic parrot will be cheering for England tonight -- after owners spent a month training it to squark "Come on Rooney".

Feathered football fan Benji - and African Grey - is said to enjoy watching matches and squarks whenever he recognises the England team.

Owner Ruth Borrill from Peterborough says she has taught his to support our boys in South Africa by also cheering 'Come on England' and 'Goal!'.

African Grey Parrots are originally from West and Central Africa, so it is quite surprising Benji is supporting England.

As you can see from the video after the link, Benji currently says "Come on Roon" rather than Rooney -- maybe by the time we are in the World Cup final he will have got it right.
