Wayne Rooney farewell ticket sales will not go to player's foundation

Wayne Rooney is an iconic player says Ryan Giggs

The Football Association had already revealed that the Three Lions' all-time leading goalscorer would be involved in a friendly clash with the United States on November 15.

Kane also thinks the decision to bring Rooney back into the squad is a fitting way to honour England's record goalscorer. "There were a lot of experienced winners in the dressing room, and me and Wayne were close in age with similar backgrounds and we just got on and clicked", Fletcher told Sky Sports News.

That decision has been criticised in the English media with a number of exciting young prospects needing more game time to be tested at the worldwide level and the U.S. game seen as preparation for what could be a crucial Nations League decider against Croatia four days later.

Southgate revealed talks over Rooney's involvement have been going on for a year, ever since his global retirement. We have an opportunity with the game at Wembley to pay tribute.

The two countries have started consultations on the matter, state-run Russian news service Tass reported on Wednesday. We have to ensure that we advance our national security objectives without injuring our economic interests.

"I really think it's important that the former players feel part of what we're doing with England".

He said: "There's still a long way to go but hopefully I can stay fit and healthy and score a few more goals".

It was announced by the FA on Monday that DC United captain Rooney would return to Wembley next month for his 120th and final England appearance against the United States. I know what it meant to Sir Bobby Charlton when he came to St George's and we named the pitch after him a few months ago. We haven't decided on that at this time, so he wouldn't wear No. 10 because he won't start the game. "I guess that will depend on the circumstances of the game and the players that are out there, but I have no issue with that at all".

Having proved himself to be a consistent performer in the Premier League, despite enduring injury struggles, the 26-year-old has been selected by Southgate for the first time - having previously figured for the current boss of the senior side at U21 level.
