first_imgRooney breaks scoring record LONDON (AP): Wayne Rooney has broken Bobby Charlton’s 45-year-old scoring record for England by netting his 50th career international goal. Rooney converted a penalty in the 84th minute for a 2-0 lead against Switzerland yesterday in a European Championship qualifier at Wembley Stadium. The Manchester United forward blasted his spot kick high into the net before pumping both fists and running over to celebrate in front of the England supporters. Charlton scored 49 goals in 106 England games. Rooney needed 107 games to get to 50. He had equalled the record by netting a penalty in a 6-0 win against San Marino on Saturday. England have already qualified for Euro 2016. England win MANCHESTER, England (AP): England kept alive the one-day series against Australia by winning the third match by 93 runs at Old Trafford yesterday, thanks to a first ODI century by James Taylor and a stunning display of fielding in the reply. Taylor held up one end in hitting 101 off 114 balls to allow Jason Roy (63) and Eoin Morgan (62) to make rapid contributions, as England posted 300-8, their highest total so far this series. Recalled opener Aaron Finch top-scored with 53 as the Australians were dismissed for 207, ending their seven-match winning run against England in ODIs. Moeen Ali and Liam Plunkett took three wickets each in a tight overall bowling performance. Australia lead the five-match series 2-1 as they look to end the tour on a high, having lost the Ashes series 3-2 and also the one-off Twenty20 international. The fourth ODI is at Headingly on Friday.last_img read more
