Rooney not done yet

Wayne Rooney has no plans to end his international career any time soon.

Rooney's place in Roy Hodgson's starting XI for Euro 2016 has been called into question following the good form shown by Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy in recent weeks

The Manchester United and England captain was forced to miss last week's friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands due to a knee injury that has kept him out since early February and he will have limited time to get back to to speed when he returns.

Despite some questioning whether or not he has a future at international level, Rooney believes he can still contribute to England's cause.

"I've still got a few years left, I feel. I'll keep trying to, first and foremost, help the team be successful and if I can score the goals to help achieve that then that'll be great," Rooney told the PFA's 4 The Player magazine.

"Over the last two years my form for England has been really good, I've scored a lot of goals.

"It's a young team and obviously as captain you want to get a strong bond between everyone and I really feel there is that at the moment, everyone gets on really well.

"There isn't a massive age gap from the oldest to the youngest player - I think us and Holland were the youngest teams going through qualifying - and I think that shows and helps the younger lads relax around everyone.

"You have myself, Joe Hart, Gary Cahill who are a little bit older and are there to help with anything but we're all together all the time and I think the squad is in a very good place right now."
