Fernando Toress internationally as he massively contributed towards Spains Euro 2008 triumph and helped Spain win their first WC. Also he achieved golden boot in Euro 2012. Rooney ontheotherhand is imo a better club player as he helped Utd win numerous PL titles, European cups, etc (toress is yet to win the PL)
Many people say Toress was a waste of money however people have turned a blind eye to how pivotal he was in Chelseas CL triumph in 2012, for example he scored at the nou camp to send Chelsea into the final and more importantly won the corner in the final which led to Drogba equalising against Bayern Munich, there are many other important contributions he made for Chelsea in Europe. Toress makes an enormous impact in big football matches unlike most overrated strikers who never turn up on the big stage. However I think Rooney is still a better club player as Toress is yet to win the PL.
So, to summarise it all comes down to international success mixed with club success, Toress is yet to win the PL and Rooney has never came near to winning anything internationally so it is a tough call but my gut instinct tells me Toress is the better ST, he has won everything except the PL but that can change next year with the return of Mourinho however I never see in a million years Rooney winning any international tournamens thus cincluding Fernando Toress is the better ST.
