Wayne Rooney has officially retired from global football, bringing to an end a record-breaking 13-year spell with England. At other times he courted controversy, or failed to live up to massive expectations. "He'd be [one of Britain's] top 10 ever - he's had a marvellous career". - Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, who gave Rooney his debut in 2003 and for whom he shone at Euro 2004, to Sky Sports.

17 - Age Rooney made his global debut as a substitute in a friendly against Australia in February 2003.

Rooney had scored four times in the tournament before he broke a bone in his foot. England lose and therefore fail to qualify for Euro 2008. Russian Federation will be my last tournament'.

June 24 - Scores in the penalty shoot-out versus Italy, but England crash out in the quarter-finals.

With the goals came injuries - like the broken metatarsal that blighted his 2006 World Cup campaign - and occasional flashes of temper as England's talisman struggled to drag an inferior side up to his superior standards.

2010: June 18 - Aims an angry tirade into the camera straight after a 0-0 draw versus Algeria at the World Cup in South Africa.

53 - Goals, an England scoring record.

It also allows them to look forward as they start to plan out their team for the 2018 World Cup and beyond. England lost 2-1, as they did in the opener against Italy, and finished bottom of the group. Let us not forget that in the 13 years Rooney has led the England line, all the efforts of the national side have effectively amounted to nothing.

1 - In those 21 tournament outings, he scored seven goals and registered two assists. There is a nagging feeling that too many of Rooney's goals have come in meaningless England friendlies and run-of-the-mill qualifiers - against lesser worldwide sides.

"This is a player that was always available for England, he rarely threw one in". He went on to break Bobby Charlton's record with a goal against Switzerland in September 2015 at Wembley.

21 - Rooney made 21 appearances for his country at major tournaments. He looked fitter, sharper and hungrier than in recent years, and seemed to relish being the father-figure in a team containing two 20-year-olds (Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Mason Holgate) and a 19-year-old (Tom Davies). Given the options that manager Gareth Southgate can choose from, qualifying for Russian Federation should not be too much to ask.

Having been famously sent off against Portugal in the 2006 World Cup and again in a Euro 2012 qualifier in Montenegro, Rooney also has two red cards in his global career.
