Wayne Rooney has retired from England duty in a surprise decision less than a year before the World Cup.
Rooney’s 14-year international career came to an end when he released a statement on Wednesday after speaking to England manager Gareth Southgate.
The 31-year-old had started the season in fine fashion after re-joining Everton from Manchester United, prompting speculation he could make his first international appearance since last November.
However, Rooney opted to call it a day to focus on the end of his club career. Here, we look at 10 stats from his dramatic international career, courtesy of Opta:
119 – Rooney won 119 caps for England, second only to Peter Shilton (125) and the most of any outfield player in the country’s history.
53 – The Everton striker’s 53 international goals is a national record, breaking Bobby Charlton’s previous mark of 49 in September 2015.
