Shilton’s Record Not As Close As It Seemed For Rooney

The Rooney row rumbles on and regardless of whether he starts against Slovenia, William Hill are offering just 10/3 that he fails to break Peter Shilton’s England appearances record. It is the same price that he leaves Manchester United in January.


England are 4/6 to win away against Slovenia while Wayne Rooney is 19/10 to score anytime.


“Rooney’s reception at Wembley was probably not the best he has ever received and while a year ago he may have looked a shoo in to beat Shilton’s appearance record but now as a backup at United and with the fans against him, his role in the England set up suddenly looks slightly more precarious,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Will Wayne Rooney break Peter Shilton’s appearance record (125 Shilton, 117 Rooney): 1/5 yes; 10/3 no


Will Wayne Rooney leave Manchester United in January: 10/3 yes; 1/5 no


Who will be England captain for the first game of the 2018 World Cup: 1/3 Rooney; 4/1 Henderson; 7/1 Cahill; 8/1 Stones; 8/1 Hart; 16/1 Smalling


Slovenia vs England: 5/1 Slovenia; 4/6 England; 13/5 draw
