Wayne Rooney

Rooney began his playing career at Everton when he was 10, rising through the ranks to make his professional debut in 2002. His first goal for the Merseyside club was a stunning strike, which ended Arsenal's 30 game unbeaten run. The goal put him straight in the spotlight, where he has remained ever since.

He received his England call up in 2003 and made his debut against Australia aged just 17. He scored his first goal for his country against Bulgaria and at the time he was the youngest ever player to do so. He is currently the fifth in England's all-time goalscoring list.

In 2004 Rooney moved from Everton to Manchester United for £25.6 million and quickly became an important part of Sir Alex's plans, with United he has gone on to win the Premier League four times, the UEFA Champions League in 2008 and also two FA Cups.

Rooney has made nearly 80 apperances for England and played in four major tournaments. He recently captained England in their World Cup 2014 qualifier against San Marino.
