8 September 2015 - UEFA European Championship Qualifying (Group E) - England v Switzerland - Wayne Rooney of England celebrates breaking the all time England goal scoring record with Harry Kane - Photo: Marc Atkins / Offside.

The England skipper finally broke Sir Bobby Charlton’s record, putting the seal on what has been a productive international career that will see Rooney talked about for generations to come. The penalty in the 6-0 win over San Marino was comfortably converted to equal Sir Bobby, before he reached the 50-goal mark by converting another spot kick in the 2-0 victory over Switzerland. These results saw the Three Lions become the first team to qualify for Euro 2016 and maintained their 100% record in Group E.
