Wayne Rooney has retired from international football after 119 appearances.
The striker has scored 53 times for his country, making him England’s all-time record goalscorer.
Here we look at the highs and lows of his international career.
Becomes the youngest player to play for England in February 2003 at 17 years and 111 days in a friendly defeat against Australia.
In September of that year, at 17 years and 317 days, becomes youngest player to score for England with the equaliser in a 2-1 away win over Macedonia in a Euro 2004 qualifying match.
Sets the record for the youngest scorer in finals history with two in the 3-0 win over Switzerland at Euro 2004 in Portugal, only to see the record broken four days later. Goes on to score twice in England’s final group match, a 4-2 win over Croatia.
Suffers a foot injury as England lose their Euro 2004 quarter-final to hosts Portugal in a penalty shoot-out.
Faces a fitness race ahead of the 2006 World Cup in Germany after injuring his foot in a Premier League game for Manchester United. Despite being fit, he fails to score in the group stages.
