Wayne Rooney dreams of becoming the England captain on a full-time basis and wants to win a major international competition with the Three Lions.

Wayne Rooney has revealed that he dreams of captaining England to international success in the future.

The Manchester United forward was the Three Lions skipper for their 5-0 win against San Marino in the 2014 World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday.

"Of course, I dream of ­captaining England to glory one day," the 26-year-old is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

"As a young player, your dream is to play for England and, once you play, the next step is to captain your ­country.

"I've done it now. It was a great honour and ­hopefully one day in it can be ­full-time."

Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard will return as the England captain for their Group H clash with Poland in Warsaw on Tuesday.
