England coach Roy Hodgson says that Wayne Rooney will be given the captain's armband permanently in the future.

England coach Roy Hodgson has revealed that forward Wayne Rooney will be his captain in the future.

The 26-year-old was the Three Lions skipper for their 5-0 victory over San Marino in the 2014 World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday.

"Yes," said Hodgson when asked if Rooney will be his future captain. "He was my vice-captain at the Euros, at least from the moment he could play.

"Frank Lampard has come back in and he's actually captained the team but I always had in my mind that Wayne would be the vice-captain.

"It's something he's proud of and something he wants to do."

Rooney became the fifth-highest goalscorer of all time for England with his two goals on Friday, taking his tally to 31 goals.
