She missed the first England game as they took on France in their Euro 2012 open even though her husband was on the bench.
But with the imminent arrival of the national team's WAGS, Coleen Rooney has set out en route to the tournament which is taking place in Poland and the Ukraine.
And as she and son Kai – who was dressed head to toe in the full England kit – as well as her brother Anthony McLoughlin prepared to board their private jet, she took to her Twitter page to announce: 'Goodbye England… Hello Poland!'

Coleen and her clan were jetting off out of Liverpool John Lennon Airport this morning ahead of England's next game against Sweden.
She will meet husband Wayne – who is suspended for the first two matches of the championships – at the team camp in Krakow and they will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary, which was yesterday.

Matthew Heaps, 25, from
Preston, said: 'It's a good idea for them to come here. I think they
deserve to be here. The players should be treated with respect. I'm all
Robert Cleary, 27, from Birmingham, said it would be fine as long as the players do not 'take the mick'.
He added: 'As long as they go out and
train hard, play hard on the pitch, if they've got the missus around
then that's all right. Keep them happy.'
Caroline Milford, 50, from Gillingham, Kent, claimed the WAGS could be a 'good luck charm'.
She said: “Let's hope they're what the team needs to progress, hopefully to the final.”
But James Blair, 23, from Middlesbrough, said the England team 'should be a lads thing'.
He said: 'They're here to play football and to work. I'd rather they spent more time with the fans rather than the WAGS.'
His friend, Marc Thomas, 23, said: 'If I was a professional I'd rather concentrate on my job than have my girlfriend over here.
'It's only a couple of weeks.'

Last night, Coleen headed out for a girlie night out at the Kanye West and Jay-Z Watch The Thrones tour in Manchester as she marked her fourth wedding anniversary.
She looked rather glum, but glam in a pair of black
shorts, matching top and towering bronze glitter Christian Louboutins.
