Wayne Rooney has been the talk of English football after becoming the national team’s all-time leading scorer with his 50th goal against Switzerland on Tuesday night.
The Manchester United skipper scored from the spot at Wembley to give the Three Lions a 2-0 victory and helped to maintain their 100% record in Euro 2016 qualification.
However, the night will forever be remembered for Rooney’s historical achievement and a few of his international teammates have praised him via their official social media accounts.
