Wayne Rooney to make England farewell against USA

Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney is set to come out of worldwide retirement for England's friendly against the United States later this month to mark his contribution to the national team.

The FA in a statement said that England's fixture against the US will be known as The Wayne Rooney Foundation International in support of the legend's charitable interests.

According to SunSport revealed that Gareth Southgate will name Rooney in the upcoming global friendly match with the United States of America to earn his 120th cap in the friendly at Wembley on 15 November.

The Football Association will honor Wayne Rooney by allowing the DC United striker to make his 120th and final England appearance against the United States at Wembley Stadium on November 15.

Rooney, a record goalscorer for both Manchester United and England, has not played global football for almost two years.




The FA added the match would give the Wembley crowd the "chance to show their appreciation of one of England's greats as the curtain comes down on a glittering Three Lions career that spanned three FIFA World Cups and three UEFA European Championships". The 33-year-old former Manchester United record goalscorer has not played for the Three Lions since a 3-0 victory over Scotland in November 2016.

"Given Wayne retired from worldwide football 15 months ago, if the FA really wanted to give him a send-off, why could they not invite him to the game as a guest?"

The Sun On Sunday exclusively revealed that Gareth Southgate and the FA have been planning how to pay tribute to the country's all-time leading goalscorer since he announced his retirement more than 14 months ago. "But they should not turn an global match into a testimonial".

He will not be a part of England's squad for a Nations League clash against Croatia at Wembley three days after the United States game.
