England super star footballer striker Emile William Ivanhoe Heskey (32) has retired from the international soccer , but analysts can’t stop asking themselves, where does that leave his team mate Wayne Rooney? The black wonderboy has allegedly been disgruntled about his national team’s under average performance and premature exit from the 2010 South African World Cup. The Aston Villa striker has reportedly been capped for England 62 times and scored seven goals for the three-lions. Heskey is of Antiguan descent and first played for England against Hungary in 1999. The match ended in a 1-1 draw. After the UEFA Euro 2004 challenge he was heavily neglected by the England coaches. Following his much too long ‘rest period’ from the England squad, he was summoned again to the squad for the UEFA Euro 2008 in 2007 to cover for the injured Wayne Rooney. However heskey says he was never fully appreciated and did not have enough physical chance to perform in the 2010 South African World Cup spectacle, so he has allegedly opted to retire from international soccer.
