Rooney retires from international football

 

England’s record goal scorer Wayne Rooney has retired from international football.

The Everton forward, who also holds more England caps than any other outfield player, scored 53 goals in 119 appearances for his country.

England manager Gareth Southgate had phoned Rooney on Tuesday to invite the 31-year-old for a recall into his upcoming squad after two goals in two Premier League games following his return to Goodison Park.

But the former Manchester United captain told Southgate of his retirement decision in the same conversation.
