Wayne Rooney took over England's corner-taking duty despite Roy Hodgson wanting Harry Kane to take them.

Wayne Rooney has admitted he overruled former England manager Roy Hodgson by replacing Harry Kane on corner duty during Euro 2016.

Hodgson was criticised for a number of his tactical and selection decisions as his side failed in France, with one of the earliest debates centring around his main striker delivering dead balls rather than getting on the end of them.

Kane took all six corners in the opening game against Russia, only for Rooney to take over early in the second group match against Wales.
