The first of his record of goals arrived in September that year when he scored one against Macedonia.
The next summer he announced himself in front of the whole world with an explosive display at Euro 2004 which was a tournament many feel was his best in England colours.
He overtook record Sir Bobby Charlton as the country’s all-time top scorer when he scored against Switzerland in September 2015.
Rooney replaced David Beckham as the most-capped outfield player only a year later against Slovakia.
He is also Manchester United’s leading goalscorer.
At club level, Rooney has won every honour available in English, Continental and European football , with the exception of the European Super Cup.
Along with Michael Carrick, Rooney is the only English player to win the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, League Cup, UEFA Europa League and FIFA Club World Cup during his career.
