Wayne Rooney believes England’s’Golden Generation’ might have”won everything” if they had worked under a director of Pep Guardiola’s calibre. Rooney, who has 120 caps, stared with England but not improved beyond the quarter-final stage. But he thinks England’s disappointing record was down to instruction rather than a lack of talent. “I watch [England] with excitement and pleasure when they are winning,” he told the Wayne Rooney Podcast. “You look at our team a decade back and arguably we now had the best set of players in world football. “Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole, [Steven] Gerrard, [Paul] Scholes, [Frank] Lampard, [David] Beckham, myself, Michael Owen – our team afterward, if we had a Guardiola with this particular group of players, then we’d have won every thing, no doubt about it” Rooney is the record goalscorer before Sir Bobby Charlton, four with 53 of England. But he considers England captain Harry Kane – who has scored 26 goals for England – is capable of overtaking that record. “I never take targets for granted, I still love grading them. After I got to 35 for England, I might truly feel the record getting shut,” Rooney said. “I don’t think that it’ll endure for 50 years including Bobby Charlton’s, I think Harry Kane, possibly the subsequent a few years will… He’s a fantastic goalscorer and his album for England is fantastic. “Once I got the record and then went for my final match I said it’d be an honour to go and introduce him like Bobby Charlton introduced me with the golden boot and also I’m convinced it won’t be before too long.” Read more here: http://tsllibya.com/?p=18141
