Chelsea defender John Terry is full of praise for Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney ahead of England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley today.

Chelsea defender John Terry believes that Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney is an England legend.

Rooney is set to play his 100th game for England later today, when the Three Lions take on Slovenia at London’s Wembley Stadium in a Euro 2016 Group E qualifier.

The former Everton star is widely considered as one of the best players in the world, and Terry claims that he is one of the best he has ever played with.

Terry himself played for England and was a key figure in the Three Lions' team before his retirement from international football.

The 33-year-old centre-back scored six goals in 78 appearances for his country, before deciding to quit from England duty in 2012.
