Wayne Rooney believes England’s’Golden Generation’ might have”won what” when they’d worked under a director of Pep Guardiola’s calibre.
Rooney, with 120 caps, stared at six major championships with England but not evolved beyond the quarter-final stage.
He believes England’s unsatisfactory record was to coaching instead of a lack of talent.
“I see [England] with excitement and enjoyment when they’re winning,” he informed the Wayne Rooney Podcast.
“You have a look at our team 10 years back and possibly we now had the best set of players in soccer.
“Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole, [Steven] Gerrard, [Paul] Scholes, [Frank] Lampard, [David] Beckham, myself, Michael Owen – our team then, when we had a Guardiola with this group of players, then we would have won every thing, no doubt about it”
Rooney is the record goalscorer with 53, four ahead of Sir Bobby Charlton of England.
But he considers present England captain Harry Kane – that has scored 26 goals for England – is capable of overtaking this record.
“I never shoot goals for granted, ” I enjoy scoring them. After I made to 35 for England, I might feel the record becoming shut,” Rooney said.
“I don’t think that it’ll stand for 50 years like Bobby Charlton’s, I think Harry Kane, possibly the next a few years will… He’s a fantastic goalscorer and his album for England is fantastic.
“Once I got the album and then went back for my final game I said it’d be an honor to go and present him such as Bobby Charlton presented me with the golden boot and also I am convinced it won’t be before long.”
