Top five: Wayne Rooney England goals (1)

Published Add your comment

Ten years after making his international debut, Wayne Rooney will turn out against Montenegro this evening, in one of the most important games England has played in recent years.

Roy Hodgson's side go in search of three points that will send them back to the top of Group H, and wrestle back control of their qualifying campaign, to edge them one step closer to Brazil, for the World Cup in 2014.

Of course, Podgorica is a familiar venue for Rooney and co; the scene of the red card crime that ruined the Manchester United striker's summer last year. But, the Manchester United striker has relished returns to the locations of his former misdemeanours before, and will be looking to bounce back with the Three Lions again on Tuesday.

After the 8-0 thrashing of San Marino on Friday night - a game in which Rooney scored his 34th international goal in just 80 appearances - England must build on recent momentum and muster another good performance against Montenegro.

And, what better time than for Rooney to lead from the front, almost a decade after his first start for his country, in what was an eye-catching display in a 2-0 win over Turkey at the Stadium of Light.

In preparation for tonight's all-important clash at the Podgorica City Stadium, and in anticipation of a match-winning performance from Rooney, GiveMeFootball picks out five of his best England goals.
