Wayne Rooney believes Sam Allardyce is a good appointment as England manager.
Skipper Rooney, his country's all-time leading goalscorer, was part of a Three Lions side which was humiliated by Iceland at last month's European Championship and suggestions followed that he may retire from the international stage.
But the Manchester United forward, who turns 31 in October, is keen to continue and is relishing working with Allardyce.
Rooney told various newspapers:
Yeah, I think it's a good appointment for England. He will probably bring a different way of playing to England and hopefully it's a good way and we can be successful under him.
I only know him through teams he has managed. I have seen him a few times off the pitch, but it's like everyone, I know him through the teams in the Premier League. Am I going to carry on? Of course. It was asked of me after the Euros, but yes, I'll be there.

Wayne Rooney believes "exciting times" lie ahead at Manchester United following Jose Mourinho's appointment as manager.
Months of speculation finally came to an end last Friday, with the former Chelsea boss signing a three-year deal at Old Trafford following Louis van Gaal's wholly-expected sacking.
Mourinho's arrival has been welcomed by many connected to the club and captain Rooney has joined the chorus of those backing the appointment.
"It's exciting - one of the best managers in the world," the 30-year-old said.
"Obviously he knows the Premier League really well and for myself, and I am sure for the other Manchester United players, it's exciting times. I am looking forward to it."

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is closing on a return to fitness and will feature for the club's Under-21 side next week.
Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed the striker has trained this week and is in line to face Middlesbrough Under-21s on Monday.
"No (he won't play at Tottenham), he's playing for the Under-21s," said manager Van Gaal.
"It's going very well. He has trained with us two times - only two times so it's not too much.
"He has to build up his capacity in the 21s team."
