Wayne Rooney set for England farewell match

Wayne Rooney set for England farewell match

"If anything, this would convince me not to buy one".

But Shilton, who holds the record for the most England appearances with 125, disagrees with Rooney's recall.

Despite Rooney's impressive form in the MLS since moving to DC United in July, where he helped the team into the playoffs after scoring 12 goals in 21 games, his return to the England set-up is purely on a one-off basis, sources have told ESPN FC.

So when I arrived back in England I was kind of afraid, not because of Rooney but because of England supporters.

But there are rumours that the former Manchester United striker is in line to return to the Three Lions fold as a one-off in the friendly clash with U.S. at Wembley on November 15.

The global friendly, set to take place on November 15, has been dubbed The Wayne Rooney Foundation worldwide and some of the proceeds from the game will go towards the Manchester United great's charity.

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

"Playing for England was the greatest honour of my career - so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me".

The team went out on penalties to Columbus Crew.

"But England play Croatia in the Nations League three days after this US match, so turning it into a testimonial means Gareth's players will not be preparing properly for the important game which follows it", Shearer added.

He went on to retire from worldwide football and was not part of England's World Cup squa in Russian Federation.

Rooney, meanwhile, is impressing in MLS with D.C. United following a frustrating second stint at boyhood club Everton.

Rooney, the former United and Everton forward, who scored 53 goals for the Three Lions, announced his retirement from worldwide football in August 2017.

"Manager Gareth Southgate will also name the 33-year-old in his squad to face the Americans at Wembley Stadium on Thursday 15 November (8pm kick-off)".
