Wayne Rooney equalled Bobby Charlton's 45-year-old England scoring record on Saturday when he netted his 49th international goal in a 2016 European Championship qualifier away to San Marino. The England captain converted a 13th-minute penalty to give England a 1-0 lead in Serravalle after the Cypriot referee spotted a foul in the box.
