Wayne Rooney, England’s all-time top goalscorer, has announced his retirement from international football. Here is a statement from Wayne on his decision to retire form international football: It was great Gareth Southgate called me this week to tell me he wanted me back in the...
Josh Doggo Mears Think he wanted to prove that he still has the ability to play for England, he got that proof when Southgate called and asked for him back. Now he has nothing else to prove on that front and can focus on getting a trophy with the Blues! Legend Wayne!!
Jeff Dolphin Great news... England are shite..!!! Mediocre player's... Rooney was/is the only true world class player England had/has..! He has made the CORRECT decision..! Look at the captain Jordan Henderson what an overated ordinary player he is..! England absolute shite..! Won't get past the the group stage in Russia..! Same old..! Rooney is well rid..! 😂
Jackie Momsen Will probably achieve more at Everton than he will playing for England .. if i'm correct the last time they won a trophy was in 66 ??
Andrew Green Great for Everton this!! Southgate should never have dropped him! He did what the press wanted! We will win nothing under him either! The man has zero balls! Rooney retires as England's greatest goal scorer! Let's hope it does what it did for shearer he got an extra 3-4 years at the end of his career thanks to stopping international football!
Terry Chambers Sad to see such a great player retire from playing for his country especially when he still has plenty to offer but I can honestly say you won't miss anything playing for Southgate Wayne. We probably won't even qualify under that clown! Worst England manager in memory for me certainly on a par with McLaren. Might have been a different outcome if we had a Terry venables or Bobby Robson in charge of the team someone to inspire the likes of Wayne Rooney. You got called up Wayne and are playing great for everton!
Jordy Dwyer I hope you pass on this passion & thrive to every player who comes into this club Wayne, it's a great club, let's let everyone know it 💙
Rob Lyons I love Rooney but I reckon this is how the conversation went this week. Gareth "as before I can not recall you anymore. We have better players now" you are playing well so you say you are retiring and I was going to recall you. Least I can do for a legend". Wazza: thanks boss!
Kris Eccleston Good decision! If he goes back & England remain poor he'll be the scapegoat! Too old, past it all that shite. Glad he wants to focus on Everton he's hit the ground running & can really help us win something. He's shown he's still a class act 2 games in!
Sam Armstrong Good it will stop Rooney from dragging a bunch of average England players through another tournament whether in form injured or not ,,,,, England are serial tournament bottlers
John Ocquaye Well in Wayne, great decision for us blues, less travelling, less football, less injuries, as well as that you have proven you still have what it takes since you have been home and playing again.. COYB
Dave Murphy Well if he's putting in performances like he did at The Emptyhad, the lad wouldn't last long.
I didn't want him back as I thought it was purely a sentimental and not a good decision for a forward thinking club, as we are now purporting to be.
He's certainly quietened me and I won't offer any criticism towards him anymore.
In other news, Come on Hoffenheim these are shit these!!!
Bobby Monks He made the right decision. England R rightly building for the future & he is knocking on a bit. Going away for 10 day trips with all the training especially if he doe's not play will do him no good if he is wanting to extend his Club career till his body tells him it is time to pack up. It comes to all players & the timing is now right for him to draw the curtain on his International Career.
Dean Holmes Just proves how much he wants to stay fresh and give his all to us especially after the great start for us that's two fingers to all the people that didn't want him back fair play Wayne you're a legend!!!!!
Richard Shacklady Great shame he got injured in Portugal in that first campaign. His England record is not fully appreciated . Their lossisour gain - c'mon Wayne show them what youcan do in a blue shirt.
Andre Affendie Phuttharat He's great isn't he? 👍 Now anyone comes to play for Everton needs to know it's all about passion and heart for the club.
Owen Lawrence Think it's great putting 2 fingers up at Southgate, would of liked to see him play a cracker for England again but while that useless twat is manager of England i'd fuck him off too.
Jason Barlow He broke UTD and England scoring records, won all trophies at UTD but nothing will mean more to him than winning something as a blue so fair play to him retiring to concentrate on Everton
Steve Jackson Still a shame though Andy
He can still do it for England easy you'd think anyone would play as many England games as possible its not as if he is injured all the time
Ian Thompson Exactly the right thing to do! Give your last years at the top to Everton Wayne!
John See Well done Wayne, a classy way to step out. Under your own terms. Concentrate on creating a lasting legacy at Everton. COYB
Steve Mavo Davies The Best News for EFC.
John Ansonia Waits for the call first.....yeah thanks but no thanks gareth lol
Terry Stockdale Shocked but maid up he can just play 4 us know hopefully be injury free
Stìofán Steo Russell Hes got notting but abuse from the english faithful and notting left to prove love him or hate him the lads a legend
