Wayne Rooney's England Debut

Wayne Rooney England

Can you name the 2 England XI's (1st half & 2nd half) from Wayne Rooney's debut against Australia?

We've seen some top players play for England over the years but one who's stood head and shoulders above many is Wayne Rooney. Now at the age of 33, the former Manchester United & Everton man enjoyed a glittering career for both his club sides and the national team. His domestic career was full of silverware and despite his time with England not being the same, he still has achieved an incredible amount of success. During his 15 year career for the Three Lions he's won a massive 119 caps (making him the most capped outfield player), scored the most goals of any player with 53 strikes to his name along with captaining the team at major tournaments.

Last year he announced his retirement from the national team to focus on his club career but this week he was a surprise inclusion for England's friendly against USA at Wembley. Rooney of course plays his domestic football over in the States so this match will mean a lot to him, with him expected to get some minutes off the bench in what The FA are branding a 'farewell game' for England's most prolific goalscorer. It will provide fans the opportunity to give him a positive send off and it's also going to raise a significant amount of money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation - so great news all around.

With the clash against USA now just around the corner we've been taking a look at Rooney's England career and put together a quiz. We want to see if you can name the TWO XI's from his Three Lions debut back in February 2003 when England went down to a shock 3-1 defeat at Upton Park to Australia. Then boss Sven Goran Eriksson changed the entire XI at half time which gave Rooney and a number of young players their chance to impress on the biggest stage of all. There's a few blasts from the past in this one but we're expecting some pretty hefty scores from you all - so anything over 17/22 is something to be proud of! Give it your best shot below and tweet your efforts into us @FootyAccums - good luck!
