Come see the best jokes that Twitter had to offer as Wayne Rooney became England’s all-time leading goal-scorer by converting a penalty in last night’s 2-0 win over Switzerland.

The Manchester United striker’s second-half strike took him to 50 England goals, one ahead of Red Devils legend Bobby Charlton.

Rooney’s international record now stands at 50 goals in 107 caps, which compares favourably with those of Cristiano Ronaldo (55 in 120) and Lionel Messi (48 in 104).
