Man Utd star WAYNE ROONEY has declared he’s not ready to retire from England just yet.

Rooney scored from the penalty spot, but couldn’t stopped them slipping to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat against Iceland in the last-16 stage of Euro 2016 last night.

Rooney  was substituted towards the end after an unimpressive display.

But despite England’s exit from the competition, Rooney said that he has no plan to retire from international football like Messi did yesterday.

“It’s disappointing tonight, but I enjoy and am proud playing for England,” he said.

“I’ll be interested to see who the next manager is. If selected, I’ll certainly be there.”

Roy Hodgson resigned in the wake of England’s shock defeat.

When asked about Hodgson, Rooney said: “We can’t forget he’s brought a lot of young players through and I think the future’s bright for England.

“Unfortunately it hasn’t happened in this tournament but hopefully, in the future there’s good things to come and although it’s difficult to say and see that now, I think Roy has been good to the players and I’ll be thanking him.”
