Rooney closing in on Bobby Charlton's record after two against Scotland
19th November 2014

Amar Singh, digital sports editor at the Evening Standard, gives his take on the England-Scotland clash. 

It was an impressive victory for England, especially as the team hadn't been to Glasgow since 1999, although it was expected they would come out on top. 

It leaves the team on a high for 2014, as it marked the last match of the year for the squad. Scotland have come away disappointed after a strong performance. 

Two impressive goals saw Wayne Rooney named man of the match. His performance puts him two from matching Gary Linenker's record and just three from equaling the  all-time international goal scoring record held by footballing legend Sir Bobby Charlton. 

Lineker has tweeted he is supporting Rooney. However, he also jokingly announced on Twitter that Rooney had retired, which isn't true. 

Rooney picked up his one hundredth cap over the weekend.
