Captain Kane happy to honour Rooney in England farewell

Despite having not played for the England in nearly two years, Wayne Rooney will come out of worldwide retirement to play in a friendly at Wembley against the United States later this month, for what will be his final appearance and will raise money for his new charity.

"However, to honour Wayne Rooney and his record-breaking England career, we will also help raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation through a number of fundraising initiatives around the match".

After news of Rooney's return drew a mixed response, the Football Association revealed the D.C. United striker would only make a second-half cameo appearance at Wembley.

Ryan Giggs has backed the shock England return of former Manchester United colleague Wayne Rooney by applauding it as an opportunity to recognise an "iconic player".

"Wayne Rooney has been the best England player of his generation, and his contribution deserves to be recognised", Hurst told Grosvenor Sport. He was captain when I got into the squad. "If he plays, of course he'll be the captain".

The England boss also pushed back on the idea that Rooney's inclusion devalues the earning of an worldwide cap, saying the value of of a cap is a hard concept to pinpoint.

Le'Veon Bell is in Pittsburgh, but that doesn't mean he will be reporting for work anytime soon, or anytime at all. Despite the video, there was no indication Wednesday that Bell had visited the team's facility.

"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. It's a real good thing for everyone to be a part of", he added.

"I've not spoken to Gareth [Southgate] too much about how he's going to do it or how long he's going to play but it will be great to see him again and I'm sure he'll be looking forward to seeing a few of the boys".

"I was quite happy for the tribute to be before the World Cup but Wayne did not want to detract from the team at that time, so now we have the opportunity to pay that tribute". I think he's got 12 goals in 20 games, and it looks as if he's really enjoying life in America.

The 33-year-old, who now plays for DC United in Major League Soccer, has not represented the Three Lions in nearly two years.

"If I'm a current player, the way former players are treated is very important to me, because you can see what the future holds for you".
