Rooney was once the youngest goalscorer in the Premier League. Sixteen years old was he when a shot distance of a foot more than thirty meters away within flew. Now that honor as the youngest goalscorer play for James Vaughan. He also played for Everton (2005) and found touch against Crystal Palace at the age of 16 years and 274 days.

Rooney indicates Paul Scholes if you ask him who he is the best player with whom he ever in the team played. Clarence Seedorf thinks he is the best player in the counterparty on the field stood.

After thirteen years he made a return from Man United to Everton. In his first match in the Premier League he did immediately, for which he is most known for: scoring. Another important goal, as it continued with a 1-0 victory against Stoke City.

Goalkeeper Peter Shilton , he will never catch up as the player with the most caps for England. Rooney did well but 13 years of his 119 matches for the Three Lions to play, Shilton got 125 caps spread over 20 years.

The record of most goals (53) for the English national team is in possession. In that ranking, he goes to Sir Bobby Charlton (49) and Gary Lineker (48). He scored his 50th for England from the spot against Switzerland in 2015.
