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

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

Southgate revealed talks over Rooney's involvement have been going on for a year, ever since his worldwide retirement.

He added: "I've talked a lot to the players about the important of the shirt, the history, we've brought former players back in to speak to the squad, to present shirts". We have an opportunity with the game at Wembley to pay tribute.

The England boss said the idea was sprung from a similar tribute Germany gave to Lukas Podolski, admitting honouring former players is not an area the FA has been strong in over recent years. It's a real good thing for everyone to be a part of. "But hopefully I can keep fit and healthy and score a few more goals".

Southgate confirmed that Rooney will not wear the No. 10 shirt against the USA, but would not be drawn on whether England's all-time leading goalscorer will wear the captain's armband when he plays.

"Having said that, we've given caps to people who haven't earned them in the past - I'm not going to name names - and you do wonder how on earth they got them. So if he plays, of course he'll be the captain". "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".

He was considered for a recall by Gareth Southgate in August 2017, but shunned that opportunity in favour of ruling himself out of contention for future call-ups.
