Carrick praises Man Utd teammate Rooney for England record

Michael Carrick was thrilled for Wayne Rooney after he became the most capped outfield player for England.

Rooney made his 116th appearance for the Three Lions in Sunday's 1-0 win over Slovakia in Trnava in World Cup qualifying.

The 30-year-old bypassed former teammate David Beckham's 115-game record for outfield players in the national team and his achievement was recognised by Red Devils colleague Carrick on Twitter.
