Rooney Confirms 2018 World Cup Will Be His Last Tournament With England

Wayne Rooney has confirmed the 2018 World Cup in Russia will be his last with England.

Speaking at a news conference ahead of the opening World Cup qualifier with Slovakia on Sunday Rooney confirmed he plans to call it a day in two years' time.

"Realistically I know myself that Russia will be my last opportunity to do anything with England. Hopefully I can end my time with England on a high.

"I said before the Euros I enjoyed playing in this team, and that's the case still. There were some questions about whether I should stop playing, 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." He added: "My mind is made up... Russia will be my last tournament."
