Euro 2024: Rooney names England’s two most important players


Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has named England’s two most important players ahead of this summer’s Euro 2024 in Germany.

Speaking on the Overlap, the recently appointed Plymouth Argyle manager said Jordan Pickford and Harry Kane are the Three Lions’ most important players.

Rooney said: “Harry Kane and Jordan Pickford are England’s most important players. Jordan is important to England because Gareth Southgate doesn’t rotate him in the friendly games, so we are yet to see what the other goalkeepers can do.

“I played with Pickford at Everton, and I was in the England squad when he first came into the team.

“Due to the way that Pickford is, they judge him because he is a bit lively and some of the bits he does in goal.”
