Former Manchester United and England midfielder David Beckham has congratulated Wayne Rooney for breaking the England goalscoring record.
Rooney scored a penalty against Switzerland on Tuesday to lift himself up to 50 for England, one ahead of Sir Bobby Charlton in the all time list.
It was a remarkable achievement for Rooney, who scored his first goal for England against Macedonia in 2003 and now, 12 years later, he has become the highest ever goalscorer in England’s history.
Beckham was full of praise for Rooney and insisted there are “many more” goals to come from him:
Rooney’s record will likely stand for a long time as he made his debut early on his career before maintaining his place in the starting XI. Sir Bobby’s record stood for decades and Rooney’s will likely do the same.
The hope is that the confidence boost helps him perform against Liverpool this weekend, as he hasn’t looked up to scratch in the Premier League so far this campaign.
