Romelu Lukaku: Ross Barkley will take Wayne Rooney's place for England

Ross Barkley has been tipped to become the future for his country.

Romelu Lukaku says Ross Barkley is the perfect player to eventually replace Wayne Rooney as England's No.10, because the Everton midfielder has an ability unknown to other players.
