Wayne Rooney named England player of the year



Wayne Rooney has been voted his national team's player of the year for 2014 after topping a supporters poll.


Although he failed to inspire England to success at the World Cup, it was still a memorable 12 months for the Manchester United striker.


The 29-year-old scored eight goals in 13 appearances and was named England skipper following Steven Gerrard's retirement from international football.


Rooney also moved to within three goals of Bobby Charlton's all-time scoring record.


Rooney took 27 per cent of the votes from an online poll of supporters club members, more than second-placed Danny Welbeck (11 per cent) and third-placed Raheem Sterling (seven per cent) combined.


“I’m both very happy and proud to be named the England fans' player of the year," Rooney told the Football Association's website after winning the award for the third time.


"The fact that this award is chosen by the fans makes it even more special, so I would like to thank all those who voted.


"I would also like to thank all the England fans for their support throughout what was a mixed year.
