Chelsea defender Gary Cahill poses for a snap with England's new record goal-scorer Wayne Rooney in Wembley dressing room
Gary Cahill joined Wayne Rooney for a snap after the Manchester United captain became England’s all-time record goal-scorer.
The 29-year-old scored from the penalty spot in the 84th minute to score his 50th England goal and surpass Sir Bobby Charlton’s total.
Rooney, who is still waiting for his first Premier League goal of the season, doubled England’s lead in a 2-0 victory over Switzerland at Wembley.
And Chelsea defender Cahill took to Twitter to post a photo with England’s new record goal-scorer in the dressing room after his feat.
Special day for the skipper. What an amazing achievement. Making history… 👌👍 pic.twitter.com/5oKF3YZBy7
