Wayne Rooney to captain England in farewell friendly match against the USA

Rooney will award the caps to the debutants and has been asked by Southgate to address the team before the game about the importance of playing for England.

"I played with him (Rooney) at the start of his career".

But Southgate has been so impressed with Rooney's achievements that he ranks him alongside Paul Gascoigne and Paul Scholes as one of the three most influential stars of the modern game. "He is an outstanding player and outstanding person", Southgate explained in his press conference, as quoted by the Metro.

But there is no denying his place in United's history books, with Rooney the club's leading goal-scorer in a career that also saw him win five Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and three League Cups with the Red Devils.

The 33-year-old, however, admitted that he had been hoping to retire as a United player, but his lack of opportunities under manager, Jose Mourinho forced him to leave United. I think everyone is different.

Right down to the fact Southgate put together a highlights reel of Rooney's record breaking career to show to his squad at St George's Park earlier this week. The former captain will receive a guard of honour in the... "He's a player who is really adapting brilliantly to a new league, living in a new country".

"We remain on track to deliver our record full-year revenue guidance, underpinning our long-term, strategic plan to create sustainable growth across all areas of the club". The more important thing is that within the England group, we value what he has done.

England manager Gareth Southgate has been disappointed by some of the reaction to Wayne Rooney's recall for the friendly against the USA.

"I wasn't playing, first of all".

"It is incredible to live your life and grow up in that spotlight and be able to cope with it and excel within it".

Speaking about his time at Man United, Goal quoted Rooney as saying: "Of course you miss it. It will be a huge night for Wayne and we want to make it special for him".

"But just tactically they knew what they were doing, they knew their jobs and knew everything, and I think we were just one step behind with that".

"Our financial strength enables us to continue to attract and retain top players and to invest in our academy, as we look to drive the success on the pitch that the club and our fans expect", executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said.
