Wayne Rooney looks to be preparing for a career in acting after his time at Manchester United comes to a close.

Rooney, the United and England captain, has been joined by Juan Mata, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Ashley Young in a video promoting the upcoming film Independence Day: Resurgence.

The quintet are asked why they think they can take on an alien army, to which the United players boast their 20 league titles, 12 FA Cups, four League Cups and 20 Community Shields.

United v aliens – we know who we’re backing! #IndependenceDay

Rooney adds: "I'm fairly certain we can take on a few out-of-towners."
