I CAN STILL WIN THE WORLD CUP - ROONEY




The striker is braced to break Sir Bobby Charlton's
all-time Three Lions record and he thinks there is
still time for him to lead his national side to glory in
2018.
Wayne Rooney believes he can become an England
legend like Sir Bobby Charlton but knows it will take
a World Cup win for that to happen.

The 29-year-old will surpass Charlton’s 49-goal
haul for the Three Lions if he manages to score
twice against San Marino on Saturday and inch Roy
Hodgson’s side closer to securing their place at
Euro 2016.

After bursting on to the scene at Euro 2004 with four
goals, Rooney’s performances at major
tournaments have subsequently failed to live up to
expectations.

However, the Manchester United star has not given
up hope of leading England to glory in Russia in
2018 and compared his situation to that of
Argentina's Lionel Messi and his legendary
compatriot Diego Maradona.

Rooney said: “Up to a couple of years ago, people
were saying Messi wasn’t Maradona because he
hadn’t won the World Cup. In my mind, Messi is a
better player than Maradona. But that’s how football
is.

“It’s about trophies you win. As a team, that’s how
you’re judged. Sir Bobby did that. Hopefully there’s
still time for me to be successful like that.”
