Rooney to make England swansong vs. USA

Rooney to make England swansong vs. USA

However, his inclusion is a huge surprise and will leave Southgate and the Football Association open to the accusation that they have devalued playing for England given it is a one-off and Rooney retired from worldwide football previous year.

"I agreed with Wayne's decision to retire from England in August 2017".

Currently Rooney plays for DC United in the MLS where he inspired them to move up the table but they were eleminated from the first round of the playoffs against Colombus Crew.

Rooney's last game for the Three Lions was against Scotland at Hampden Park previous year but the former Manchester United star will be looking forward to get a proper farewell match against the Americans.

In an honour not previously given to an England player, Rooney will win his 120th cap when he appears as a substitute in the friendly against the United States at Wembley on Thursday week.

He had not been at his best for the a year ago of his global career and it was the right time to call it a day.

Wayne Rooney will play for England again.

Veneto regional governor Luca Zaia says flooding could reach the levels of the 1966 flood that inundated both Venice and Florence. People clean up debris a day after a storm washed up several boats, in Rapallo, northern Italy, on October 30, 2018.

Rooney is England's all-time leading goalscorer, with 53 goals in 119 internationals. "It's fitting the match will be against the US".

Rooney became England highest capped outfield player when he made his 116th Three Lions cap against Slovakia in September 2016.

The FA has renamed the game against the US "The Wayne Rooney Foundation International" and said there would be "fundraising initiatives around the game" to support his charity.

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".

"Wayne is England's record goalscorer and had a superb worldwide career".

Wayne Rooney retired from global duty in August 2017 but will play for England again for charity. We're fortunate that circumstances have allowed us to formally acknowledge Wayne's huge contribution to England in front of the Wembley crowd and against apt opponents given the recent impact he has made in MLS.

The upcoming friendly will also raise money for Rooney's foundation.
