Gerrard: I knew Rooney would be 'world class'

Speaking exclusively to ITV's Matt Smith ahead of Wayne Rooney's 100th England appearance, former skipper Steven Gerrard explains how he knew the forward would be "world class" the day they met.

Rooney had been called into the England squad aged 17 for the Euro 2004 qualifier against Turkey in April 2003.

The teenager blew his senior international team-mates away with his performance in training, which included a perfectly executed chip over David Seaman.

More than 11 years later, Rooney is now captaining his country and will become England's ninth centurion when he leads the team out against Slovenia in Saturday's Euro 2016 qualifier.
