World Cup 2018 will be my last tournament – Wayne Roney:
The legendary player and the now England Captain, the prominent Wayne Rooney has announced that the up and coming 2018 World Cup which is going to happen in Russia will be the last game he’s going to play in his international career as a footballer.
Realistically, I know myself that Russia will be my last opportunity to do anything with England. My mind is made up. Russia will be my last tournament. Hopefully, I can end my time with England on a high. I said before the Euros, I enjoyed playing on this team, and that’s the case still. There were some questions about whether I should stop playing (for England), but I am looking forward to getting back on the pitch. I made my mind up before the Euros, whether we did well or not, that I was going to continue. I’ve had nothing to think about since then.
, revealed Wayne Rooney in a press conference which happened a couple of days back at St. George’s Park, Central England. This year, Rooney got humiliated for his performance and leadership as a captain by the minnows Iceland in Euro 2016. Maybe he has taken it straight to his heart.
