Lineker & Shearer back Rooney

BBC Sport's Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer praise England captain Wayne Rooney, who will reach 100 caps when the Three Lions face Slovenia on Saturday.

Both former England strikers point to Rooney's 43 international goals as evidence he is a "top player".

Shearer believes the Manchester United forward does not get the "credit he deserves" from fans and the media, while Lineker adds the 29-year-old is one of "English football's finest".
