Wayne Rooney scored his first ever World Cup goal this week but it wasn’t enough to save England from their earliest ever exit from the competition.

As you would imagine, Rooney is gutted to be coming home so early, so wrote on Facebook: “Absolutely devastated to be out of the World Cup. Going into each game we had great belief in ourselves but unfortunately it hasn’t worked out. Sorry to all the fans that travelled and at home that we haven’t done better… gutted!”
