The new Three Lions captain scored from the penalty spot as his side edged the Norwegians 1-0 at Wembley and despite the victory, feels there could have been more quality from the entire England team.

“I thought I could have done better. We all could have done better,” Rooney told ITV1 after the tune-up for Monday’s opening Euro2016 qualifier against Switzerland in Basel.

“It’s a night, first game after the World Cup and it was important that we got the win tonight, especially going into the game on Monday.

“In the first half we moved quite well but they made it difficult for us and sat back and created a few opportunities in the first half.

“In the second half we started really sloppy and that was disappointing as we wanted to go out and really take the game to them.

“We got the win in the end and there are a lot of young players in this team and we will learn. They are still learning.”
