England are in the running to host the 2018 showpiece, and the 22-year-old Manchester United ace says his career desire is to play and lift the trophy in his homeland.
"It's possible I could still be playing for England then," Rooney told the Daily Star. "Hopefully I can still be playing for my country and it will be even better if we do well in it.
"As a footballer you want to be remembered as a winner. Hopefully before I retire I can say I've won something with England."
