Wayne Rooney named England's Player of the Year for fourth time

Wayne Rooney has again been named England Player of the Year after a record-breaking campaign.

Rooney, 30, had a mixed year with Manchester United, but 2015 was a year to remember on the international front.

The striker's five goals in eight England appearances moved the forward onto 50 goals, seeing him usurp Sir Bobby Charlton as the country's all-time top scorer.

The forward captained Roy Hodgson's men to European Championship qualification with a 100 percent record -- just the sixth side to ever do so.

Such impact has seen Rooney voted England Player of the Year for the second successive campaign -- and fourth time in his career.

The Three Lions skipper received 37 percent of votes from the England Supporters Club members, who chose Jack Butland as their Under-21s Player of the Year.

The impressive Stoke goalkeeper received 54 percent of the votes after captaining the Young Lions at what was an ultimately disappointing European Championship in the Czech Republic.

Butland has stepped into the senior squad towards the end of the year and will be presented with the award alongside Rooney when England continue their Euro 2016 preparations in March.

Hodgson's men will travel to Berlin for a friendly with Germany on March 26, before hosting Netherlands at Wembley on March 29.
