I will not retire from international football – Rooney

Wayne Rooney has insisted he will not retire from international football and plans to continue as England’s captain for the 2018 World Cup qualification series.
The Three Lions were eliminated from Euro 2016 on Monday, after they lost 2-1 to lowly Iceland at the Allianz Riviera.

Roy Hodgson resigned immediately after the round of 16 clash, but Rooney says he will not follow in that direction.

“It’s disappointing tonight, but I enjoy and am proud playing for England,” Rooney told The Mirror.

“I’ll be interested to see who the next manager is. If selected, I’ll certainly be there.”

The Manchester United skipper, also admitted that England players let Hodgson down.

“We can’t forget he’s brought a lot of young players through and I think the future’s bright for England,” he added.

“Unfortunately it hasn’t happened in this tournament but hopefully, in the future there’s good things to come and although it’s difficult to say and see that now, I think Roy has been good to the players and I’ll be thanking him.”
