Whether Wayne Rooney is appointed the captain of England by Sam Allardyce, just as he was by Roy Hodgson, remains to be seen.

However, although the captaincy is still up in the air, there`s no doubting that Rooney`s ambition to represent his country, unlike others in the past, is as strong as ever.

Rooney, looking forward to his testimonial fixture against Everton this Wednesday, has spoken to the media about continuing to be available for England, and is quoted in the Sun as having remarked,

“I`ll carry on until the World Cup in 2018 and then I might have a decision to make.

“But for the next two years, captain or not, I will turn up and be available to play if I am wanted.

“I`ve spoken to him. Not at length about how we`re going to play or my role, but he seems very excited.

“I don`t think it would be fair to expect him to make a decision on the captaincy now. So I`ll wait and see what he thinks.”


What are your thoughts on the subject matter?

Will Sam Allardyce retain Wayne Rooney as the England captain or will the new boss offer it to someone else?
