England vs Estonia: Wayne Rooney doubt for Wembley clash as John Stones

There was, understandably, no mention of Rooney’s very bad recent form, with the documentary instead focusing on the everyman element of Rooney’s personality, and his record breaking feats before the age of 30.


Wayne Rooney faces a fitness race to play for England against Estonia on Friday after sitting out training on Tuesday.

The England global is set to be honoured ahead of the game against Estonia at Wembley after he surpassed Sir Bobby Charlton to become England’s leading goal-scorer.

“Being the player he is and has been over the years, you can never write off someone like that”.

You can enjoy all of his Premier League goals for United against Arsene Wenger’s men in our video above, and here’s to him netting another one this weekend.

The United manager deployed Rooney as a central midfielder at times last term, and that is where Beckham believes the England captain is destined to end his career.

“I don’t think you can ever write off a player that’s scored the number of goals he has for England and Manchester United”, said Beckham.

“I beloved enjoying with David Beckham – as a striker you realize you can also make a run and he’ll put in in your head or into area for you”, stated the 29-year-old.

“There was a couple of seasons where we didn’t win things (under Ferguson), we ended up with the FA Cup but not doing well in the Champions League and the Premiership”.

“We’ve been spoilt over the years at United – being so successful over the last 20 years”. When the manager leaves and a number of players retire, like Scholesy [Paul Scholes] and Giggsy, no matter what club it is or how much money you have behind you, there is going to be a dip in trophies.

Beckham, who left United for Real Madrid in 2003, is eagerly anticipating his return in next month’s charity game.

Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson has called up Tottenham duo Kyle Walker and Andros Townsend after Everton star John Stones, who missed the Merseyside Derby on Sunday, withdrew from England duty with an injury.

“I’d have to say Stevie [was the best]”, he said.


“I miss playing with him”.
