Hodgson handed more caps to Rooney than any other England manager, and says although the "new beginning" first came to light after the World Cup in 2014, the 31-year-old "s retirement opens the door to others and marks the end of a 'Golden Generation".

After 14 years as an #England worldwide, #Wayne Rooney has today announced his intention to retire from global football.

"With the season Wayne had last season - with him not being given the chance to play as much as he would have liked - he is concentrating on his football at Everton and if England comes knocking he has more goals to go for", the Everton captain said.

In a statement released yesterday, Rooney said: "It was great that Gareth Southgate called me this week to tell me he wanted me back in the England squad".

Everton boss Ronald Koeman, though, said Rooney's retirement from global football is "a good decision for him and a good decision for Everton". He said, "Leaving Manchester United was a tough call but I know I made the right decision in coming home to Everton".

Only Peter Shilton has more caps than Rooney, who should be considered one of the best Three Lions players of recent times, according to Carragher.

Southgate said he had a long conversation with Rooney, who announced his retirement on Wednesday, about his decision and had been considering including him in the squad.

The decision has sparked widespread discussion about whether the former Manchester United striker should be regarded as one of the greatest players to turn out for the national side.

"His motivation is quite simple - he wants to help Everton improve and be part of a team which is successful and wins a trophy".

The English star stressed that he would always remain "a passionate England fan".

After announcing his retirement from worldwide football, Wayne Rooney has been inundated with public tributes from fellow players who donned the Three Lions kit, with former captain David Beckham the latest to send his appreciation. He was unable to match those individual displays at a major competition, despite playing three World Cups and two further Euro Championships.

Rooney's former club and country team-mate Rio Ferdinand took to Twitter to laud Rooney's England record, describing his career as "fantastic".

Another former boss Sven-Goran Eriksson believes Rooney should still be going to the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation as his country needs him.

It means Rooney played his final appearance for England against Scotland last November, a game that was followed by an apology after Rooney appeared drunk at a subsequent wedding party at the team hotel. "He's been a pleasure to work with and I am sure at some point in the future there could be some involvement with England", he added.

"Maybe Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard would also be in that group, but he is England's top goalscorer". The player rolled back the years and surprised one and all by pulling off a moment nobody expected to see.

His first England goal came against Macedonia in September of the same year and led to him becoming an automatic choice for the side that entered Euro 2004.
