Wayne Rooney has set himself the challenge of surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton's goalscoring records for both Manchester United and England.

Rooney needs 17 more to emulate Charlton's international tally and another 64 to equal the former midfield legend's record at Old Trafford.

At 27, the former Everton man clearly feels time is on his side to overhaul both, and said in an interview with Shortlist magazine: "Sir Bobby Charlton holds both (records) so that's a great challenge. The guy is a legend and is such a presence around the club. If I could break his record as Manchester United's top goalscorer and maybe even England'! That is such a great incentive."
