Wayne Rooney

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has revealed that the 'Carrington quintuplet' a group of special players "controlled the Manchester United dressing room" during Sir Alex Ferguson reign at Old Trafford.

The game has been earmarked to raise funds for the Wayne Rooney Foundation, which is seeking to raise over £500,000 for various children's charities including the NSPCC. Rooney, who will be making his 120th appearance for his country, called time on his England career just as new manager Gareth Southgate was putting his faith in younger player towards the start of his tenure.

Having made his global debut in 2003 as England's youngest ever player, Rooney surpassed Bobby Charlton as his country's leading scorer in 2015.

The game against the US - three days before the decisive Nations League clash with Croatia at Wembley - has been designated as a charity fund-raiser by the FA. "It's fitting that the match will be against the US and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game". I hope that whilst I am with the squad I can pass on some of my experience.

"I was lucky to enjoy a long and successful career with a great many people helping me to achieve my dreams".

The 33-year-old, now playing in Major League Soccer with DC United, has not played for England in nearly two years, but the match at Wembley a week on Thursday is set to be his 120th senior appearance in an England shirt.

His 12 goals in 21 DC appearances set up a meeting with Columbus Crew, but Rooney missed from the spot in DC's penalty shoot-out defeat following a 2-2 draw.

"Wayne Rooney finished with England, Gareth Southgate moved on and I don't agree with this at all".

"This tribute to Wayne is a unique opportunity that is befitting of our nation's record goalscorer", said Southgate.
