Wayne Rooney to return for England farewell vs USA at Wembley

Wayne Rooney

As an England player, Rooney has won 71 games, drawn 29 times and lost just 19 of his matches at worldwide level.

He has scored 12 times for DC United since he joined the MLS side from Everton last summer, taking them from the bottom of the league to the play-offs.

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

He'll win his 120th cap when Gareth Southgate's side face the United States men's national team in a charity friendly on Thursday November 15.

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".

Rooney will also be training with the squad as they prepare for their Nations League game v Croatia, although he is not set to feature in that one. "It's fitting the match will be against the United States of America".

Trump vows to terminate birthright citizenship
Birthright citizenship , as it is referred to in the USA , is enshrined by the 14th amendment to the United States constitution. The wording of the 14th amendment has always been disputed if it guarantees citizenship to everyone born on US soil.

Roney's last England appearance came against Scotland and Hampden Park, but after the game he announced his global retirement.

Rooney retired from worldwide duty in August 2017 as England's record goalscorer, while he has won more caps than any other outfield player. 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.

He made his worldwide debut in 2003 against Australia and scored his first goal in a 2-1 victory over Macedonia later that year in a Euro 2004 qualification game.

Rooney won the majority of his worldwide caps while playing for Manchester United and was dropped by Southgate during his final year at Old Trafford, in early 2017.

Sources had told ESPN FC of the plans on Sunday, and later in the day the FA said in a statement: "England's fixture against the US is to be called The Wayne Rooney Foundation International in support of the legend's charitable interests".
