Man Utd captain Rooney breaks another England record

Wayne Rooney became the most capped outfield player for England on Sunday.

The Manchester United captain played his 116th match for the Three Lions in their 1-0 win over Slovakia in World Cup qualifying.

Rooney moved past David Beckham to be the stand-alone caps holder for non goalkeepers, and is now just nine from equalling Peter Shilton's all-time record of 125 appearances.

During his international career, Three Lions skipper Rooney has also scored a record 53 goals for his country.
