He’s crammed a lot into those teenage years.

For a start he scored on his Europa League, Champions League, Premier League, EFL Cup, England Under-21 and England debuts.

So we’re sure he’ll be able to live with disappointment of not taking Rooney’s record.

He also shares a birthday with Ricardo Fuller, Denis Irwin, Mustafa Izzet and Ian Walker.
