Wayne Rooney Aims England Return
Wayne Rooney says he is not “moving into a retirement home” by rejoining Everton, and believes he can force his way back into the England squad.
The 31-year-old striker, re-signed on a free transfer, started 15 league games for Manchester United last season.
He was not in the England squad for matches against France and Scotland.
Rooney said he was “not focused” on England, but added: “Hopefully the performances are good for Everton and they won’t be able to ignore me.”
“I think I always play like I’ve got a point to prove,” he said, at his first news conference since returning to Goodison Park. “I’m ready to play and want to win.
