Wayne Rooney made history by breaking Sir Bobby Charltonâ€™s all-time England goalscoring record in the Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley.
England captain Rooney equalled Charltonâ€™s tally of 49 with a penalty in the victory against San Marino on Saturday that ensured a place in France next summer.
And he was on the spot again late on in Tuesdayâ€™s match against the Swiss for goal number 50 to erase a record that has stood for 45 years.
It looked like Rooney might be made to wait until Englandâ€™s meeting with Estonia at Wembley next month as Switzerland frustrated Roy Hodgsonâ€™s side until their resistance was eventually broken.
England substitute Harry Kane pierced the deadlock with a crisp finish after 67 minutes and Rooney rewrote the record books with a thunderous penalty six minutes from time, earning a standing ovation from the Wembley gallery.
It ensured his side completed eight wins out of eight, securing top spot in Group E.
