Wayne Rooney has officially retired from international football!
Its a shocking news, given that his form has improved ever since signing for Everton.
Its also strange given that Rooney still isn’t all that old. He’s only 31-years old, and could have easily have at least two tournaments under his belt for England.
Well, Rooney decided, how he decided, and Twitter reacted!

WHAT DO FANS THINK ABOUT ROONEY’S (ENGLAND) RETIREMENT!
Wayne Rooney retiring means only Theo Walcott remains playing international football from the 06′ WC squad. They were supposed to win that..

Well, Rooney retired as the top England’s scorer, but there’s a felling that he left his job incomplete.
Everyone expected Rooney to win something with England, but nothing happened.
Still, Rooney retired from England on his own term, and gave way to younger players.
