Will Rooney usurp Charlton? Tweeting twits to be banned?

Wayne Rooney moved to within 17 goals of Bobby Charlton's England goal scoring record and William Hill make him 5/6 to break the record during his international career (5/6 that he does not).

A quick glance at the Manchester United goal scoring charts sees Rooney closing the gap on Charlton to 68 goals and William Hill are offering odds on when (not if) he becomes United's all-time leading scorer. He is 100/1 to break the record this season and 14/1 to do so next season. He is 11/4 to never break the record.

"Wayne Rooney has been one of Manchester United and England's World Class players for a number of years now and there is little doubt that he will continue playing for a number of years and break some records along the way," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Ashley Cole has been fined £90,000 by the FA for his foul mouthed tweet and William Hill are offering 7/1 that Chelsea are the first Premier League team to ban their players from tweeting, only behind Manchester United at 6/1 in the betting.

Manchester City goalkeeper, Joe Hart, did not bathe himself in glory for Poland's equaliser but William Hill offer 1/33 the keeper keeps his spot for the Sweden match.
