Wayne Rooney England’s highest record goalscorer in the history of our game. Soon to be the most capped player our great country has ever produced. One of the very best players I have seen and had the pleasure playing with in my lifetime and a man who has given everything for England. An absolute LEGEND at Everton,Man Utd,England and world football. We should all show more respect to this great player and man. Let’s all get behind Wayne and the England team tomorrow. @waynerooney ???????
