my fav player is Wayne Rooney He was named in UEFA's All Star squad of Euro 2004. Grew up with his parents Jeanette and Wayne Snr and his younger brothers Graham and John. He was only nine when he was spotted by an Everton scout while playing for boys' club Copplehouse in the local Walton and Kirkdale Junior League in Merseyside. An injury in the first 15 minutes of the quarter-final against Portugal from a challenge saw Wayne breaking the metatarsal bone in his right foot. Unable to continue, his tournament was over. His £3.5 million house has an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, cinema, games room and gym. His first goal in Portugal, against Switzerland, made him the youngest ever player to score in a European Championship he held the record for only 4 days. Was named the Premiership Player of the Month award for December 2005. Wears the Number 9 shirt when on duty for England. League Cup Winner 2006.
