Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney stands alone as the World Cup qualifying campaign's leading scorer.

After last night's 5-1 thumping of Croatian, Rooney took his goal tally to 9, two clear of his nearest rival.

Fabio Capello's Three Lions also are head-and-shoulders ahead of rivals in the overall scoring stakes.
