I CAN STILL WIN THE WORLD CUP - ROONEY

By 12:38 Sat, 05 Sep 2015 Comments


The striker is braced to break Sir Bobby Charlton's

all-time Three Lions record and he thinks there is

still time for him to lead his national side to glory in

2018.

Wayne Rooney believes he can become an England

legend like Sir Bobby Charlton but knows it will take

a World Cup win for that to happen.

The 29-year-old will surpass Charlton’s 49-goal

haul for the Three Lions if he manages to score

twice against San Marino on Saturday and inch Roy

Hodgson’s side closer to securing their place at

Euro 2016.

After bursting on to the scene at Euro 2004 with four

goals, Rooney’s performances at major

tournaments have subsequently failed to live up to

expectations.

However, the Manchester United star has not given

up hope of leading England to glory in Russia in

2018 and compared his situation to that of

Argentina's Lionel Messi and his legendary

compatriot Diego Maradona.

Rooney said: “Up to a couple of years ago, people

were saying Messi wasn’t Maradona because he

hadn’t won the World Cup. In my mind, Messi is a

better player than Maradona. But that’s how football

is.

“It’s about trophies you win. As a team, that’s how

you’re judged. Sir Bobby did that. Hopefully there’s

still time for me to be successful like that.”
