Wayne Rooney to return to England squad for friendly match against USA

Wayne Rooney applauds the England fans

England's decision to hand Wayne Rooney a recall for a friendly date with the United States has been questioned by Alan Shearer, with the D.C. United star considered to have been handed "a testimonial".

And now, according to The Sun, Rooney will be included in Gareth Southgate's squad for a charity fund-raising friendly against the United States on November 15.

Rooney, 33, has not played for England since 2016 and announced his retirement from internationals at the start of last season.

He had not been at his best for the past year of his worldwide career and it was the right time to call it a day.

This will serve as Rooney's proper farewell to honour his incredible career as an England player, while the hope from the FA is that it will also raise more than £500,000 for a number of children's charities, including the NSPCC.

The woman was identified as Izabela Lechowicz, an experienced pilot and flight instructor, Polish Radio reported, citing police. A small candle was placed in front of the flowers as people gathered at the stadium.

"I would like to thank Gareth Southgate and The FA for inviting me back and helping to support my Foundation in the process".

Unfortunately, the fairytale ended this week as Rooney missed a penalty in a 3-2 penalty shootout defeat to the Columbus Crew.

Rooney retired with relatively little fanfare despite his 119 caps and record 53 goals, but the match would give England fans the chance to say a "fond farewell".

"We all look forward to the occasion and lending support to a number of good causes through the Wayne Rooney Foundation".

"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".

All of the active-duty troops are scheduled to be deployed by the end of the week, but some are already in the Rio Grande Valley. The U.S. military has already begun delivering jersey barriers to the southern border in conjunction with the deployment plans.

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.

He went on to retire from worldwide football and was not part of England's World Cup squa in Russian Federation.

"Wayne is England's record goalscorer and had a superb global career".

Jermain Defoe says Wayne Rooney's England return against U.S. will be a "really special moment" and believes he can help inspire the younger players in Gareth Southgate's squad.
