England boss Roy Hodgson: 'Wayne Rooney certain to break goalscoring record'

England boss Roy Hodgson says that Wayne Rooney is certain to become his country's all-time top goalscorer.

England manager Roy Hodgson has declared that Wayne Rooney is certain to break Sir Bobby Charlton's record of 49 international goals.

The Manchester United striker will become his country's joint-top goalscorer if he finds the net in Saturday's Euro 2016 qualifier against minnows San Marino.

"It is not something we talk about because it is obvious Wayne will break the goalscoring record," Hodgson told BBC Sport.

"At the moment his main concern is to win the remaining matches we have in qualifying. I won't mind if he doesn't score as long as we win them all."

Rooney heads into the San Marino clash having scored seven goals in his last eight internationals.
