We knew it was coming…. Rooney at 50, Rooney on 50, Rooney with 50+, Anyhow we put it, Wayne Rooney is the new England highest goal scorer with his 50th goal coming during the 2-0 win against Switzerland. 2 penalties in his last 2 games was enough for Rooney to earn his place as the present Three Lions #1.
In his words … He said it was a “dream come true” to break Sir Bobby Charlton’s England goalscoring record and set his sights on adding to his total.
“It’s a great feeling,” he said. “I’ve been close for the last few games and it’s a dream come true.
“I’ve got a lot of football in me for England. I hope the goals don’t stop.”
