Wayne Rooney was overcome with emotion after becoming England’s all-time record scorer when he smashed home his 50th goal with an 84th minute penalty in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley on Tuesday. The England skipper, who scored from the spot after Granit Xhaka had fouled Raheem Sterling, has now passed the mark of 49 goals established by Bobby Charlton in May 1970.

The FA presented him with a replica shirt with “Rooney 50” on the back after the 2-0 win secured top spot in Group E for already-qualified England.
