Thieves have stolen England caps and a World Cup shirt in a haul from Wayne Rooney's parents' house in Liverpool.
The Manchester United star's family home in Sandfield Park was targeted between 5pm and 11.20pm Saturday night.
Merseyside police are now hunting the culprits after the upstairs window was forced and jewellery and memorabilia - also including a cup final football shirt and the Young Sports Personality of the Year trophy 2002 - was stolen.
A force spokesman said: "There are a number of very distinctive items of footballing memorabilia that have been stolen from the house. "I'd ask members of the public to be on the look out in case they are offered such items for sale either on the street on in pubs or see the items for sale on the internet."
