DC United striker Rooney: Kane will break England goalscoring record

DC United striker Wayne Rooney is convinced Tottenham ace Harry Kane will break his England goalscoring record.

Rooney, 33, returned to make his 120th and final international appearance in a 3-0 friendly victory over the United States at Wembley on Thursday.

The DC United striker has scored 53 times for England - 34 more than Kane, who is eight years his junior.

"I look forward to presenting him with the trophy," said Rooney.

Kane and FA chairman Greg Clarke made a presentation to Rooney before the game.

Rooney said: "I asked Harry to present me with the award because I believe he will beat my goalscoring record.

"It was great to be out there in front of the fans again and it was special for me and my family."
