Wayne Rooney sent out a message to critics who mocked him and said he was past his prime after scoring the 200th Premier League goal of his career on Monday night.
After scoring in Everton’s draw at Manchester City, the 31-year-old now has two goals in as many Premier League games since leaving Manchester United to rejoin his boyhood club.
This performances have come after a difficult final season for Rooney at Old Trafford as he struggled to stay in the plans of Jose Mourinho and also lost his spot in the England squad.
“It is not bad for someone who is not fit anymore and can’t get about the pitch. I have always put a shift in for the team and tonight is no different.”
Asked about a potential call-up for England’s World Cup qualifiers, Rooney said: “We’ll see. I’m focused on Everton.
“I’m sure I’ll speak to Gareth Southgate over the next few days and we’ll have a conversation and see what happens.”
