Wayne Rooney has equalled Arsenal legend Thierry Henry’s international goal record of 51 goals.
On an emotional Tuesday night at Wembley, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney capped off a 2-0 win over France for England.
United fans will be hopeful that the quality strike will kickstart some goals for Wazza in the Premier League, as he has struggled and been well below par this term.
Raheem Sterling crossed the ball deep and Rooney, dropping to the far post, met it on the volley and powered it past French ‘keeper Hugo Lloris.

Rooney broke Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing England goal record against Switzerland back in September, and has scored twice in his last four games – breaking a goal drought of just one in seven games.
The captain himself was mindful of what was really important though: “It was always going to be difficult for everyone – especially the French players and staff. For ourselves to be involved in this occasion was tough – especially with a lot of young players excited to come on and make their debut.
“I thought both teams did extremely well.”
