Rooney to quit England duty in 2018

England record scorer, Wayne Rooney, will retire from international football after the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Manchester United forward spoke to the media after new England manager, Sam Allardyce, confirmed he would retain the 30-year-old as his captain.

“Come Russia I feel that will be the time to say goodbye to international football,” the BBC quoted Rooney as saying on Tuesday.

The ex- Everton striker has scored 53 goals in 115 England appearances.

If he plays in Sunday’s World Cup qualifier in Slovakia (17:00 BST kick-off), he will break David Beckham’s record for the most capped outfield England player.

“Russia will be my last opportunity to do anything with England, so I’m going to try to enjoy these two years and hopefully I can end my time with England on a high.”
