Last night Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney made history at Wembley Stadium by scoring his 50th International goal against Switzerland becoming England’s all-time top goal scorer. The record was set by Sir Bobby Charlton in 1970 who scored 49 goals in 106 appearances. There were emotional scenes of celebration by everyone from the Stewards to the guests in corporate hospitality facilities.

Wayne Rooney re-wrote the record books, not only did he become the top England goal scorer he also set 3 more records. The first being that last night’s goal was his 300th for Club and Country (233 for Man United, 17 for Everton & 50 for England). The second being that he scored in 7 consecutive competitive games for England – a post war record. Finally he become the joint 5th all-time capped player for England with Ashley Cole (107).
How long do you think this record will last & who can you see scoring more? Harry Kane? Raheem Sterling?
