Rooney calls time on his England career

Ex Manchester United and now Everton player Wayne Rooney has decided to end his time playing for England.

Rooney scored 53 goals in 119 appearances for England, he was selected for the next game by the manager Gareth Southgate, he declined the offer and called it a day.

He is now has full attention for his club Everton who he wants to see win things again, it will be tough though.

Wayne Rooney said: “It is a really tough decision and one I have discussed with my family, my manager at Everton and those closest to me,

“Playing for England has always been special to me. Every time I was selected as a player or captain was a real privilege and I thank everyone who helped me.

“But I believe now is the time to bow out.

“Leaving Manchester United was a tough call but I know I made the right decision in coming home to Everton. Now I want to focus all my energies on helping them be successful.

“I will always remain a passionate England fan.

“One of my very few regrets is not to have been part of a successful England tournament side.

“Hopefully the exciting players Gareth is bringing through can take that ambition further and I hope everyone will get behind the team.

“One day the dream will come true and I look forward to being there as a fan – or in any capacity.”
