Wayne Rooney returns to the England national team squad

Ronaldo and Rooney to link-up once again

"But I keep hearing managers and players complaining that there is too much football.And now we are to have a testimonial in mid-November".

He is also Manchester United's record goal-scorer (253).

Wayne Rooney's one-off return to the England squad in a charity friendly against United States of America has been branded "wrong" and "backwards" by former Three Lions star Peter Shilton.

The FA will attempt to compare the occasion to the farewell Germany granted Lukas Podolski, as he retired from global football after facing England in a friendly in Dortmund in March 2017.

England's record appearance-maker Peter Shilton said caps should not be "given out like gifts of presents" after it was announced Wayne Rooney would make a one-off return to the national side.

Having made his global debut in 2003 as England's youngest ever player, Rooney surpassed Bobby Charlton as his country's leading scorer in 2015.

The team went out on penalties to Columbus Crew.

"Playing for England was the greatest honour of my career - so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me. It's fitting the match will be against the United States of America".

Rooney, meanwhile, is impressing in MLS with D.C. United following a frustrating second stint at boyhood club Everton.

However, his inclusion is a huge surprise and will leave Southgate and the Football Association open to the accusation that they have devalued playing for England given it is a one-off and Rooney retired from worldwide football past year.

Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted he might reunite with his former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney in the MLS. Yet the move still risks accusations of the FA devaluing the fixture, which comes three days before England's potentially decisive Nations League tie with Croatia at the same venue.
