Oh word? If we consider players like Drogba, Henry and others to be legends,what's wrong with calling Rooney one? (Not taking anything away from those guys,they are legends imo) Dude is gonna end up as the all time scorer for both club and country on top of winning literally everything in club football...cmon Coupe
. I'm not arguing that he's ever been at the Ronnie/Messi level,I never believed that myself but he was top 5 at one point imo. A countries best player in a generation usually ends up being considered legend status...no matter how much you hate the country or what it stands for
He's scored 20 more than twice though
,you probably meant 20 in the league. His goal numbers could've been higher imo but he played in attack with some of the best attackers of his generation (RVN,Ronnie,Tevez) so the goal scoring duties were always shared during most of his prime.
I know I don't have much of a leg to stand on given the current incarnation of Wazza that we see but still...
