Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck both scored twice at Wembley as England top group H in World Cup 2014 qualifier following 5-0 over San Marino which is ranked 201 below. San Marino lost their 109 match out of 115 played. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completed the rout. Rooney has so far scored 31 goals for his country to become 5th in England all time national team scorers moving from 8th position. This come on his first cap as England Captain following John Terry retirement.
Allan Shear back in June backed Rooney to smashed his record and become all time top scorer. It seems Rooney is right on the course to prove Shear’s statement. Though it is very tough to score 19 goals and beat Bobby Charlton’s record of 49 goals he can still close the gap in these world cup qualifiers. He might as well use the World Cup in Brazil and 2014 European championship in France.
