Rooney Would Answer World Cup Call – Ex-Engand Manager Roy Hodgson

The Everton striker retired from the international scene after 14 years, making 119 caps and scored 53 goals to become the three lions record goalscorer but former national team manager expects Rooney to make a come back to the national team yet sooner.

Former England coach Roy Hodgson believes Wayne Rooney will return to the national team for the 2018 world cup in Russia. Hodgson who was at the helm of the English team between 2012-2016 says the 31-year-old loyalty to the three lions will prevail if he receives a call up to participate in Russia.

“I’m not a gambling man and never have been, but if I was such a person I certainly wouldn’t put any money on Wayne, in that situation, refusing to come out of retirement,” Hodgson told Sky Sports.

“If it was put to him in that way, I know how much this country does mean to him in terms of playing international football.

“One hopes for his sake and the country’s sake that situation won’t arise, but I feel sure if it came to that scenario and Gareth went to him and said, ‘We’re in a terrible mess here and we really need you, will you come out retirement?’ then I would be very surprised if Wayne didn’t say, ‘Yes’. But I don’t know, I’m second guessing.”

“I think he will have lots of regrets, as he knows how good this group of players that have been put together over the last two or three years can be and will be,” said Hodgson.

“He may think maybe in Russia they will show that and it would be nice to be there.

“All the more credit to him that he’s made the decision based on his club football. You shouldn’t talk someone out of that.
