Schoolboy breaks Rooney's record!


Schoolboy is better than Rooney!

If you think Wayne Rooney is good at football, meet 11-year-old Gerard, who's just beaten the England star's goal-scoring record!

Gerard plays for Liverpool Schoolboys, the same team Rooney played in when he was at school.

Before this year, Rooney held the record of 72 goals scored in one season.

But Gerard has just smashed it, netting a spectacular 76 and there are still two games left!

Gerard is a massive Liverpool fan, and hopes to play for his favourite team when he's a bit older.
