Rooney strikes gold! A penalty taken against Switzerland last month, which
sealed a 2-0 win and landed England top of Group E, also marked a 50 goal
achievement for his country. Rooney now holds the record for England,
overtaking Sir Bobby Charlton, which he previously held for 47 years.
And what a wonderful way to celebrate being England's greatest goal scorer
of all time, than receiving a bespoke gold plated boot of your own. Not only that
but Wayne shall be presented with this gift by the legendary Sir Bobby Charlton.
The boot, crafted in 24-carat gold plating by our very own silversmiths, is due to be presented
to Rooney at the Euro 2016 qualifier game against Estonia, which no doubt will build up
the excitement within fans.
What an incredible achievement, and a delight to be a part of it, well done Wayne!
