Allardyce was appointed England managerAon a two-year contract, replacing Roy Hodgson, who quit following the team’s last-16 exit from Euro 2016 at the hands of Iceland.

“I think it’s a good appointment,” Rooney, who is in China as part of Manchester United’s pre-season tour, told reporters.
“He will probably bring a different way of playing to England. Hopefully it’s a good way and we can be successful under him.”

It was said by the England skipper, who is also his country’s highest goal scorer, that he had no objective of retiring from international duty.
“Am I going to carry on? It was asked of me after the Euros, but yes, I’ll be there,” the 30-year-old added.
