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

Wayne Rooney is an iconic player says Ryan Giggs

Gareth Southgate defended the decision to honour Wayne Rooney by fielding England's top global goalscorer in a friendly against the US at Wembley next week.

The return of record goalscorer Rooney has split opinion, with the 33-year-old set to collect a 120th cap in the November 15 friendly against the U.S. to honour his Three Lions career.

"There have been ongoing discussions since Wayne retired about paying tribute to him and his England career", said Southgate, who added Rooney had declined an opportunity to be honoured before the World Cup so as not to take the attention away from those going to Russian Federation.

"That's not to say that Wayne does not deserve a tribute but give him a presentation, don't just give caps away, which is wrong and also denies a young player a chance as well".

"There's still a long way to go but hopefully I can keep fit and healthy and score a few more goals and we'll see in a few years how close I am", Kane said.

The Football Association announced on Sunday that Rooney would be awarded his 120th cap as a tribute to his England career which appeared to have come to an end when he retired from worldwide football in August 2017.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is finally coming to PS4 in December
The Xbox One version of PUBG rolled out version 1.0 back in September, about 10 months after the PC version did the same thing. A user on PS4Profiles, on online forum, provided images and Content ID codes apparently found on the PS4 game database.

"So I guess that will depend on the circumstances around the game and the players that are on there but I have no issue with that at all".

"I'm still able to look to the future in terms of the squad I was able to pick and the things I want to see". He was captain when I got into the squad.

"I understand that's caused a lot of debate and conjecture but for me it's a small way of appreciating what he's given to the country".

Southgate revealed talks over Rooney's involvement have been going on for a year, ever since his worldwide retirement. "I suppose they are trying to make up for past mistakes".

"I hope for him that he gets the appropriate response because I think he deserves that", said Southgate.
