Wayne Rooney No Longer England’s Top Striker – Alan Shearer

Wayne Rooney is no longer England’s number one striker, says former national team captain Alan Shearer.

England skipper and leading all-time goalscorer Rooney has been named in a provisional 26-man squad for Euro 2016.

Shearer says the 30-year-old is more suited to a midfield role, behind Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy.

“There was always going to be a place for the captain and rightly so,”

he said.

“But the days of Wayne being the number one striker are gone.”

“Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy deserve to have their chance up front, but I still think Wayne has a part to play, whether that is in midfield or the number 10 role.”
