Wayne Rooney could be on the plane to Russia after all, according to our odds.

England’s all-time leading goalscorer announced his retirement from international football last year.

But after an impressive stint on Monday Night Football earlier this week the Everton striker could now turn up at the World Cup as a pundit.

We go 7/4 that the 32-year-old joins the punditry team at BBC or ITV for ANY of England’s games in this summer’s competition.

Alternatively, you can back Rooney to perform a dramatic u-turn and be named in Gareth Southgate’s 23-man squad at 12/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Roo made a great impression on Sky Sports earlier this week, and we reckon the BBC and ITV will do battle for the record-breaker in the summer.”
