Wayne Rooney revelation

Wayne Rooney has admitted that though it will be an honour to eclipse Bobby Charlton’s goal scoring record, he will never truly be an England legend unless he wins a major trophy with his country before hanging up his boots.

The Manchester United star needs seven more international goals to become the all-time leading international goal-scorer for the Three Lions, but has insisted he needs to win the World Cup to be a bigger legend that the man who holds the record.
