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

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

England players should "respect" Wayne Rooney on his global return because they need to know "the history of the shirt", says manager Gareth Southgate.

"However, to honour Wayne Rooney and his record-breaking England career, we will also help raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation through a number of fundraising initiatives around the match".

Rooney will not be a part of England's squad for a Nations League clash against Croatia at Wembley three days after the United States game. Sources close to Rooney have claimed that...

The Spurs striker said: "He deserves it". Wayne was there from when I was 20, he helped me right through my England career.

Wayne Rooney will wear the England jersey one more time, in a farewell friendly against the United States of America at Wembley.

"I'm looking forward to working with him and giving him the send-off he deserves, which isn't always possible".

"I think it's great", Kane said after scoring twice for Tottenham Hotspur against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley on Tuesday to keep the London club's Champions League hopes alive.

The 33-year-old, who now plays for DC United in Major League Soccer, has not represented the Three Lions in nearly two years and the decision has been met with varied responses by players past and present.

"He's a footballer who'll want to play for as long as he can, I know that".

I understand that's caused a lot of debate but it's a small way of appreciating what he's given to his country.

"We are a odd country in that we bemoan the fact we haven't achieved as much as we'd like and then we have a player who should be held in the highest regard and we are spending a lot of time justifying giving him that tribute". I don't think Wayne has been involved in all those discussions and I don't need to be involved in all those discussions, frankly.

"There seems to be a general feeling that the team from '66 maybe wasn't recognised as might as they much have been, for certain periods. We have to balance with the under-21s as they have got a competition next summer and the more we move them up the less enthusiastic they are about moving back down, at times, so the players we have moved up we wanted to look at".
