Wayne Rooney getting an England cap ‘makes the game a circus’ - Redknapp

The match will be the called the "The Wayne Rooney Foundation International" and it will be in support of his charitable interests.

It was announced by the FA on Monday that DC United captain Rooney would return to Wembley next month for his 120th and final England appearance against the United States.

But England's most-capped player, Peter Shilton, accused the FA of getting it "completely wrong" by offering Rooney - who retired from global football previous year - what is effectively a testimonial appearance.

"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. He was a great captain for us.

A man who was heavily linked with the England managerial post at various stages throughout his coaching career told the Daily Star: "I like Wayne, I get on well with him and his record speaks for itself".

"I really think it's important that the former players feel part of what we're doing with England". "So if he plays, of course he'll be the captain".

"But also I have talked a lot to the players about the importance of the shirt, the history of the shirt, honouring the former players, and I think all the players would respect that Wayne's contribution deserves the best possible send-off". He deserves it. He was a great captain for us.

"It's a great experience for the younger players in our team".

"In terms of the captaincy, the last game he came on [as a substitute] with me, Jordan Henderson gave him the armband as soon as he ran on the pitch".

Despite not scoring in his last seven England games, Kane himself has already racked up 19 goals in 34 internationals.

"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.
