In 2014, he was given the captain’s armband to lead the England national team.  As of September 2014, he has earned 97 international caps and has scored 41 goals along the way.

Rooney was reportedly paid $8 million and royalties for the release of at least 5 books. With the amount of money Rooney has in the bank, it is easy for him to pick up expensive habits.
