The numbers behind Wayne Rooney's record-breaking England career

Wayne Rooney
Wayne Rooney scored 53 goals for the England national team.

Wayne Rooney announced his intention to retire from international competition on Wednesday, leaving him with the second-most appearances and most goals in England national team history.

The 31-year-old, who was the youngest player to make his England debut when he did so at 17 in 2003, made his 119th and final appearance in the victory over Scotland in November.

He held the distinction of youngest until 2006, when Theo Walcott debuted, 36 days younger than Rooney was.

Only goalkeeper Peter Shilton, who made 125 appearances from 1970 through 1990, has earned more England caps than Rooney. Should Rooney have remained part of manager Gareth Southgate's squad, he could have surpassed Shilton as soon as next year's World Cup.

Wayne Rooney passed David Beckham for the most England appearances by an outfield player in September 2016.

Rooney will retire having scored a record 53 goals for England. He moved past Bobby Charlton, who scored 49 international goals, by scoring against Switzerland at Wembley Stadium in September 2015.

Of those goals, 37 were scored in 74 competitive appearances -- but only seven came in international tournaments, with four of them at the UEFA European Championship in Portugal in 2004.

Wayne Rooney made 119 appearances for England, with 21 in international tournaments.

Rooney, who rejoined Everton from Manchester United in July, has scored in each of his first two Premier League games this season -- including his 200th league goal on Monday against Manchester City.

That output prompted contact by Southgate regarding Rooney's interest in upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia, at which point Rooney told the manager of his decision not to participate. He had previously stated a desire to retire from international competition after the 2018 World Cup.
