Wayne Rooney’s England career is “nowhere near over” despite being dropped from the squad, says Manchester United team-mate Marcus Rashford.

England travel to Scotland for a World Cup qualifier on Saturday and face France in a friendly three days later.

Rooney, 31, is England’s all-time leading goalscorer with 53 in 119 appearances, but has been overlooked by coach Gareth Southgate for the games.

“Wayne is a massive influence around the whole squad,” said Rashford, 19.

“He still has a lot to do in his career. There’s still a lot trophies he’ll hope to be playing for. Knowing Wayne, it’s nowhere near over.”

Southgate said the “good form” of other players, including Rashford, was behind Rooney’s omission – though the 31-year-old did not feature in England’s previous squad in March because he was not fully fit after a leg injury.
