England 2-0 Switzerland: Wayne Rooney becomes England’s all-time leading goalscorer

RooneyWayne Rooney became England’s all-time leading goalscorer as he scored his 50th international goal in a 2-0 win over Switzerland at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday night.

Rooney fired in a late penalty to break Sir Bobby Charlton’s record and prompt emotional celebrations, after Harry Kane had earlier come off the bench to put England in front during an even European Qualifier.

Manchester United striker Rooney had shot wide early on before seeing two efforts saved by the goalkeeper, while at the other end Granit Xhaka was denied by Joe Hart and Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri also could not best the England shot-stopper.

The 2-0 win gives England an unassailable lead at the top of Group E and keeps up their 100 per cent record during the campaign to reach Euro 2016.

The hosts had an early blow as Fabian Delph – making his first start of the season – pulled a hamstring within the first 30 seconds and had to be withdrawn for Ross Barkley.
