Wayne Rooney shall retain his England Player of the Year title. Fans once more elected the English skipper as the 2015 Player of the Year. The Manchester United star bagged 37% of votes cast by members of the England Supporters Club.

Rooney notched up 5 goals last season for England’s national team, surpassing the record posted by legendary Sir Bobby Charlton during the Euro 2016 qualifier.

Harry Kane, the Spurs striker, came second with 30% votes and Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart in third place with 19%.

Stokes City goalkeeper Jack Butland won the Under-21 player award by bagging 54% of the votes. Butland captained English team in the Euro Championship finals in Czech Republic last June. Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard finished second to Butland.

Rooney struggled to net goals for United this season, but he had an impressive run for the English team. He led England to the 2016 Euro finals with a 100% win record.

England will now travel to Berlin for an international friendly against world champions Germany on March 26. They will host the Netherlands at Wembley three days later.
