5 current world class players yet to win a major international trophy
#4 Wayne Rooney (England)
When Wayne Rooney burst onto the international scene in 2004, everyone thought that he would be the man to end England’s long trophy drought. However, after participating in three World Cups and two Euros, Rooney is yet to inspire the three lions to a major international trophy.
With 52 goals in 111 appearances for England, Rooney has been a great servant for English football, but he has somehow always failed to live upto expectations in the World Cups and Euros. Although many people were questioning Rooney’s credibility to start for England in Euro 2016, Roy Hodgson has shown great faith in him making him the captain of this young England side.
With Rooney 30 now, he knows that time is running out on his international career and he will be hoping to lead this young England side to glory in Euro 2016. The Manchester United man is a great fighter and he will be looking to prove his critics wrong once again.
