Wayne Rooney to make England comeback

May JohnsonNov 04, 2018

Wayne Rooney will win his 120th England cap later this month after Gareth Southgate sanctioned a farewell appearance for the DC United forward against the United States at Wembley on November 15, the English Football Association (FA) has announced.

Rooney has been a success since he moved to the U.S. to play for DC United, leading them to the MLS play-offs.

The game will raise funds for the Wayne Rooney Foundation.

The 33-year-old striker will be named in Gareth Southgate's squad for a charity fund-raising friendly against the U.S. at Wembley on 15 November.

He said: "It was great that Gareth Southgate called me this week to tell me he wanted me back in the England squad for the upcoming matches".

That was until Ian Kinsler fielded the kind of grounder he's fielded hundreds, likely thousands of times in his big league career. With Holt stealing second, Scott Alexander's pitch got away from catcher Austin Barnes, allowing Holt to take the base easily.

Including him against the U.S., so close to England's important Uefa Nations League fixture against Croatia a few days later, means that the occasion can turn into the "Wayne Rooney Show" and become a distraction. "It's fitting that the match will be against the U.S. and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game".

The former England captain is second on the all-time list of appearances made for England and now six behind Peter Shilton's record of 125.

"I have been hugely impressed with the progress of this young England team". Trying to help others is a particular focus of mine now through my foundation. Their season ended on Thursday night when they suffered a penalty shootout defeat to Columbus Crew in the first round of the play-offs.

The 33-year-old - who is second on the all-time list of appearances, six behind Peter Shilton's record of 125 - last appeared for England in the 3-0 win against Scotland in November 2016. We're fortunate that circumstances have allowed us to formally acknowledge Wayne's vast contribution to England in front of the Wembley crowd and against apt opponents given the recent impact he has made in MLS.
