Kane happy to honour Rooney in final England farewell

Rooney's England return is 'completely wrong', blasts Shilton

Wayne is one the greatest ever players to play for England, the greatest goalscorer to play for England, so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

Kane, the England captain, made it plain that the surprise move to bring Rooney out of worldwide retirement to honour him with a cameo against the U.S. had his full support.

The match will be Rooney's 120th appearance for England and a final opportunity to add to the record 53 goals he has amassed so far.

Fletcher has said that it became clear quite early that Rooney would go on to become a United great, with the only fear being that the likes of Madrid would attempt to take him from the English giants.

But England's most-capped player, Peter Shilton, accused the FA of getting it "completely wrong" by offering Rooney - who retired from global football previous year - what is effectively a testimonial appearance.

Rooney is not expected to captain England or wear the No 10 shirt against the US. "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.


"I've not spoken to Gareth [Southgate] too much about how he's going to do it or how long he's going to play but it will be great to see him again and I'm sure he'll be looking forward to seeing a few of the boys".

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been handed his first England call-up by manager Gareth Southgate. "So I think everyone should get right behind it, and it'll be a good send-off".

The DC United forward, who has scored 53 global goals and made his last worldwide appearance in a 3-0 victory over Scotland in November 2016, will be used as a second-half substitute.

"It's a great experience for the younger players in our team".

Now though, current England captain has gone off-script and said that he would love to hand over the captain's armband to Wayne Rooney.
