England skipper Wayne Rooney has called on his side to 'kick on' from their achievement of going unbeaten in a season for the first time since 1990/91.

Rooney netted the late winner himself as the Three Lions triumphed 3-2 in Slovenia to move ever closer to qualifying for the European Championship finals in France next year.

That strike also took Rooney to within one of the all-time England record of 49 goals of Sir Bobby Charlton, with the current Manchester United star looking for more from England next season.

He told reporters: "It's a great feeling, not just for myself, but the whole team are proud of the achievement to go a full season unbeaten.

"I don't think it’s happened for a long time - it's a great achievement from the lads and we need to kick on."

Meanwhile, England head coach Roy Hodgson was full of praise for his captain, whose late goal proved decisive after Jack Wilshere had netted two crackers for the visitors in Ljubljana.

He added: "Wayne's performance says a lot of things about him as a man.

"Just before he took that chance he took a nasty blow from an elbow, which could have decked many a player and led to him losing his discipline. It didn't and he got up.

"He had one or two chances that had gone begging, but when the ball fell to him he still stuck it away with aplomb. We can rely on that man."
