So what does £300,000 a week striker bring you on the international stage? Well you would expect plenty of assists and goals.
Well for Wayne Rooney, who has yet to score a single goal in three World Cups, he brought a moment of sheer comedy for those not of an English persuasion when he took a corner kick in England’s 2-1 defeat to Italy.
Will he be remembered more for that corner kick than his performances in the World Cup?
Don’t laugh too much folks….
