I cannot understand all the fuss especially as the last two goals that created this record were penalties. How many goals have not been penalties and if these were stripped out, how do other striker,s records compare. Surely any footballer of so called international standard can score penalties ( except on some occasions, English players ! )

Charlton scored 3 penalties for England, with Rooney 5. Have read here to see how they compared. Charlton/Rooney

Isn't that what they're paid big bucks to do?

Have the other 10 players not had any part in it?

Can't agree with you there Rooney is a fantastic striker wish he was Scottish, but with a name like his I suppose we can say he has Celtic connections.

Whether the goal is scored from a penalty or open play makes no difference to me,a goal is a goal and they all count,they both have averaged a goal every two games which makes them equal.

Just a player on the field of his skill can in itself cause goals to be scored.

To be awarded a penalty you need to have got the ball into your opponents penalty area in the first place.

He have taken 6 penalties for England so far and scored with each. Eleven of his 48 England goals has been scored using his head, yes I know he used his head for all of them but you get my drift.

"Just a player on the field of his skill can in itself cause goals to be scored."

The rest of the team can stay at home then?

"To be awarded a penalty you need to have got the ball into your opponents penalty area in the first place."

For "you" read "team"?
