What he said:

“I could sit here saying I’ve got 200 caps and 100 goals for my country. But the ultimate is to win a trophy and that’s what we all want to do.”

Newly appointed skipper of the English national soccer side Wayne Rooney is quite sure of his place in history.

Rooney plays his 100th tie for England this Saturday when the Lions take on Slovenia on Saturday in an European Cup qualifier match-up.

Rooney is seven goals away from overtaking Sir Bobby Charlton as his country’s all-time leading scorer. Charlton has 49 goals from 106 appearances.

Rooney said:

“Obviously I’m not going to be as big a legend as Sir Bobby Charlton – he’s won the World Cup.To eclipse that I’d have to win the World Cup.”

What Rooney really meant:

 “I wish playing for England were as easy as playing for Manchester United. At least, with them I win something. And we have a larger budget too.”

What he definitely didn’t:

 “I’ll take another Fair Play Award. We have a couple from the 90s.”
