Wayne Rooney to make England comeback

The 33-year-old announced his international retirement over a year ago

The 33-year-old announced his international retirement over a year ago

"If anything, this would convince me not to buy one".

The duo have also clashed at the worldwide level during the 2006 World Cup when Ronaldo engineered Rooney's sending off following his stamp on Ricardo Carvalho.

Wayne Rooney is set to return to the Three Lions fold one last time as Gareth Southgate looks to give him the global send off he deserves in his final appearance.

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 MLS to the play-offs.

Rooney, who has scored 53 goals for England, will make a brief cameo towards the end of the Wembley clash in a move created to commemorate the legendary striker's global career.

The match will be called "The Wayne Rooney Foundation international".

"I would like to thank Gareth Southgate and The FA for inviting me back and helping to support my Foundation in the process". It should be the greatest honour and reward playing for your country but the reality is that the MLS is nowhere near the same level as the Premier League.

Derby County - League Cup - 31 October 2018
Jack Marriott equalised for the Championship promotion-chasers, but a Keogh own goal restored Chelsea's lead. Carson saved Morata's header from Willian's corner and Derby had two chances to level in quick succession.

The team went out on penalties to Columbus Crew.

Rooney's last appearance for England came in November 2016 in a 3-0 victory over Scotland. "It's fitting the match will be against the US".

News of a recall for Rooney comes after he single-handedly turned D.C United's season around following his move across the pond.

Both men still have plenty of football at the highest level left in them, with Rooney about to rejoin the England fold for one final global outing, and it could be that their paths cross again before either slips into retirement.

"And using next week's friendly between England and the U.S. to raise money for charity is a brilliant idea".

"Manager Gareth Southgate will also name the 33-year-old in his squad to face the Americans at Wembley Stadium on Thursday 15 November (8pm kick-off)".
