It was another forgettable and worrying performance from Wayne Rooney in Estonia however his knack for scoring whilst playing poorly continued.

Rooney has now hit six goals in 10 games for club and country this season. Although he has not emerged into the playmaking talisman Evertonians envisaged 12 years ago, he remains a totem for England and Manchester United and in a year's time might be the record goalscorer for both.

His free-kick against Estonia was his 43rd England goal from 99 appearances and he is now just six shy of Sir Bobby Charlton's record haul. The England captain had six of their 12 attempts in Tallinn and scored just once against San Marino three days previously. Rooney should be disappointed he's not closer to Charlton.
