Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney scored for England at the weekend, to win the game for England 3-2 against Slovenia.
The England striker is now just one goal behind legend Bobby Charlton’s all time goalscoring record of 49 goals.
After squandering a number of good chances earlier in the game Rooney moved level with Gary Lineker on 48 international goals, when he reacted brilliantly to a mistake in the Slovenian defence to net an 86th-minute winner in the Euro 2016 qualifying match against Slovenia.
Football Betting Offer – Following that goal he is now 5/6 with Bet365 to become England’s top scorer of all time when the Three Lions play San Marino in September.
The history books could be rewritten in September, when England travel to San Marino, who are the second-lowest ranked nation in world football.
The last time England played San Marino at Wembley back in October they won 5-0, so it should be a great opportunity for Rooney to break the record.
