London - England striker Wayne Rooney is doubtful for
Friday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Estonia but will still be presented with a
golden boot to commemorate him becoming the country's record scorer even if he
does not play at Wembley.
The 1966 World Cup winner Bobby Charlton, whose scoring
record of 49 goals has been eclipsed by Rooney, will present his fellow
Manchester United great with the boot before kick-off.
A 20-metre square surfer flag with the striker's picture on
it will be passed over the fans as part of the celebrations.

Rooney, who beat Charlton's 45-year-old scoring record by
scoring his 50th goal with a penalty against Switzerland on Sept. 8, has missed
the last two training sessions at St George's Park with an ankle injury,
British media reported.
England have already qualified for next year's European
Championship finals in France and are the only team to have won all their eight
qualifying matches so far.
Defender John Stones has withdrawn from the squad with an
injury and manager Roy Hodgson has called up Tottenham Hotspur duo Kyle Walker
and Andros Townsend as replacements.For
