Wayne Rooney will be in the England squad to face USA but who will be in yours
None of the gate receipts taken from Wayne Rooney's final performance for the England national team will be made available for his foundation, a report in The Times has revealed.
"There have been ongoing discussions since Wayne retired about paying tribute to him and his England career", said the manager, who added Rooney had declined an opportunity to be honoured ahead of the World Cup so as not to take the attention away from those going to Russian Federation. We haven't decided on that at this time, so he wouldn't wear No. 10 because he won't start the game. "He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves".
Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has said that the club "were worried" that Wayne Rooney would move to Real Madrid as the Englishman developed at Old Trafford. "I guess that it will depend on the circumstances of the game and the players who are out there but I have no issue with that".
Rooney has scored 53 global goals and made his last England appearance in a 3-0 victory over Scotland in November 2016.

"All other players would respect Wayne's contribution deserves the best possible send off".
Southgate revealed he wants to "protect" his core squad as much as possible in the friendly against the United States before they play Croatia in the UEFA Nations League - a competition the England manager insists he takes seriously.
Southgate cited the examples of the global tributes paid to Lukas Podolski, David Silva and Wesley Sneijder by Germany, Spain and Netherlands respectively in recent years to justify Rooney's selection, adding that he considers the national team's heritage a vital part of the culture he is trying to build.
