Jack Grealish's England choice over Ireland isn't about national pride

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood says that he expected to be disappointed at Anfield, despite his side scoring two goals against Liverpool.
Jack Grealish has picked England over the Republic of Ireland, leading to some criticism from fans of the latter national team.

To the Irish, Jack Grealish's decision to declare for England did not come as a surprise. The trail had gone dead for some time; pretty much since the Aston Villa prodigy turned down a senior call-up from Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill in August 2014.

The last remaining straws were clutched after England coach Roy Hodgson expressed some exasperation when asked about Grealish earlier this month.

"I'm not 100 percent certain of what he is waiting for," Hodgson said on Sept. 6. "Maybe before...

EUROPEAN QUALIFIER: Harry Kane goal (67') England 1-0 Switzerland

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from England's 2-0 win over Switzerland in European Championship qualifying at Wembley on Tuesday night.

1. Rooney steps into history

There was a deep breath taken as destiny called. Granit Xhaka's hack on Raheem Sterling had given Wayne Rooney his chance from the penalty spot. The captain stepped up, his nerves holding as he blasted his shot into the net. Although Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer had guessed right, his hand could not stop Rooney hitting a half century...

Wayne Rooney sets England record but doubts persist over Man United striker

Wayne Rooney is now England's all-time leading goalscorer after he notched his record 50th goal to give the Three Lions a 2-0 lead over Switzerland in their Euro 2016 qualifier at Wembley.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Wayne Rooney's chances to break Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time goalscoring record against Switzerland and question if Rooney's record contributions have been appreciated.

England captain Wayne Rooney is now a history-maker, scoring a record 50 goals for his country in just one more of the 106 caps it took Sir Bobby Charlton to claim the previous record of 49. Rooney's disputable penalty against San Marino equalled Charlton, but he wrote himself into the history books on the Wembley turf just a few days later against Switzerland.

Rooney's record is the culmination of a career that began with such great promise as a teenage prodigy at Everton. It also comes at a time...

Rooney dependence, Stones' role and injuries on Hodgson's England agenda

1. England qualify, as Rooney equals Charlton

Qualification for next summer's European championship was secured by a comfortable England win as they became the first team to join hosts France in the 24-team draw for next summer's finals. The headlines, though, will probably be stolen by Wayne Rooney becoming his country's joint all-time leading scorer before...
