After beating Germany 3-2 in their own backyard, England captain Wayne Rooney took to Twitter to congratulate the Three Lions.

The Manchester United striker was sidelined with a knee injury and missed the friendly in Berlin but must have been impressed with his teammates’ performance.

But, with the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli all impressing, where does that leave him ahead of the European Championships this summer?

Judging from the above tweets, England fans are unanimous in believing that Roney doesn't deserve a place in England's line-up

England’s strongest position is, arguably, in the attacking third and Hodgson will have a few difficult decisions to make when selecting his squad, let alone when picking his starting XI.

Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy will feel they’ve done enough to secure their spot, having scored 21 and 19 goals league goals respectively.

Danny Welbeck has recently returned from injury and his ability to play on either wing, as well as his work rate, will likely see him earn a position.

Rooney will undoubtedly be in the squad but, having scored just seven league goals this campaign, may have to make do with a place on the bench.
