Lionel Messi has lauded Wayne Rooney after his record breaking 50 goals with England:
“Wayne Rooney is for me a once in a generation player. One of those special players, who is not comparable to any other. There are many special players, but Rooney has exceptional quality and technical ability as well as being one of the strongest players I have faced with an exceptional work rate – there is nobody like him.
“Rooney is a winner. He will just be focused on success with England in the European Championship. I have always said the same is true of myself and Argentina – breaking caps and goals records mean nothing unless they come with trophies.
“Like I said, Wayne is a winner. It will always be the team first and personal records second.”

At the end of the day, Messi is just BIG Rooney fanboy! 😛
