Rooney boosted to break the record at second attempt

He couldn’t manage it against San Marino but Wayne Rooney has another bite at becoming England’s all-time goalscorer when Switzerland come to town this evening.

And Ladbrokes are once again playing their part, boosting Rooney to score anytime and break the record from Evens to 3/1!*

The Three Lions skipper netted just the once in a 6-0 victory over the Euro 2016 qualifying minnows on Saturday but couldn’t add to his tally in Serravalle.

That means he’s now level with Sir Bobby Charlton on 49 goals for his country ahead of this latest encounter.

Playing the Swiss certainly holds fond memories for the Manchester United striker having announced himself on the big stage by scoring a brace against them at Euro 2004.

He also opened the scoring during a 3-1 victory in Switzerland five years ago.

And now that Rooney’s on the verge of history he’ll once again be looking to make an impact against a side he’s punished in the past.
