Wayne Rooney: Englands Greatest?

Recommended Posts

I'm a radio presenter from Coventry. As part of my radio show, I like to get the opinions of fans from far and wide on matters of all kinds. Wayne Rooney's goal against Estonia nudges him closer to Bobby Charlton's all time England scoring record. It seems inevitable he will break that record before he hangs up his boots. But I wanted to know, is he the greatest Striker England has produced? And if not, who is? If you don't want your opinion read out on my radio show, please say so. Thanks a lot guys!

Most definetly Rooney is so underrated . He is ultimate warrior. And imo he is the best Englishman to ever play the game !

He's certainly up there, no doubt about it. Lineker and Greaves would be another 2 to consider.

I think if we're talking greatest England careers, then Rooney is up there in the conversation (ok lack of trophies, but that describes every English player born in the last 70 years) but in terms of greatest player talent wise, I don't think he'd break the top 5. He was an incredible talent don't get me wrong, but I always felt like there was an aspect of "what is this guys best role" and the very top players I dont think there is that doubt.
