Wayne Rooney England friendly

Who is going to become England's new leading goal scorer?

Wayne Rooney has finally joined Sir Bobby Charlton as England's all-time leading goal scorer after netting a penalty against San Marino which, at first, no-one quite knew why it was given.

The England captain finished brilliantly to join World Cup winner Charlton on 49 goals for his country and just one away from breaking the record.

However, Rooney faces a pretty surprising challenger for the England record... someone who you won't have even though of! 

Own goal! 

Yep, after Cristian Brolli scored in the wrong in end on the half-an-hour mark, Mr Own Goal joined Charlton and Rooney at the top of England's scoring charts. 

And it turns out that Own Goal has been banging them in for the Three Lions since 5th of April 1879, and there has been one netted for every 43 goals.

So, Own Goal and Rooney are set to battle it out at Wembley when Roy Hodgson's side take on Switzerland in their Euro 2016 qualifier on Tuesday. 

Who will get there first? Our money might just be on own goal!
