(Video) Should England defender replace Wayne Rooney vs. Switzerland after WONDER GOAL?

Wayne Rooney may be keen to break Sir Bobby Charlton’s scoring record on Tuesday night when England host Switzerland.

The Manchester United forward drew level with the national-team great’s long-standing scoring record with a goal against San Marino over the weekend.

The goal was influential in ensuring that Roy Hodgson’s side guaranteed their place among the continent’s elite at Euro 2016 in France next summer.

However, he may have a rival for a role at the pinnacle of England’s attack…at least if this clip from England training is anything to go by.

That man might just be Phil Jagielka, who bagged this remarkable goal—a stunning bicycle kick—in preparing for the Switzerland clash.

On the basis of this effort, should Rooney be worried about his place in England’s starting XI?

In fact, despite his goal, Jagielka was dropped for England’s team for the clash at Wembley, with Hodgson opting to use Gary Cahill alongside Chris Smalling in the heart of the defence.
