As if Wayne Rooney's imminent one-night-only return to the England squad wasn't pointless enough to begin with, The FA have confirmed that the upcoming friendly against the United States of America at Wembley will not be a charitable affair after all.

Harry Kane has backed Wayne Rooney to captain England when he makes his surprise return to the global fold next week.

"It's been two years since Wayne last played, England are on a new threshold and have just had a great World Cup but are going backwards with this".

Rooney was one of 28 players selected Thursday (NZT Friday) by Southgate, but the former captain will not play on November 18 against Croatia in England's final Uefa Nations League game. I am still able to look to the future with the squad we've picked, but we've talked a lot about the history of the shirt.

The 33-year-old, who now plays for DC United in Major League Soccer, has not represented the Three Lions in nearly two years and the decision has been met with varied responses by players past and present.

Goalkeeper Peter Shilton, who with 125 caps is the only player to have represented England more times than Rooney, and ex-captain Alan Shearer both agreed that Rooney's achievements deserve honouring - but that should not extend to him playing in the match.

"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.

He will not be involved in England's final UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia three days later.

By the same number of games, Rooney has managed just 11 and the question now is whether the Tottenham player can go on to wrestle top spot off the Manchester United legend.

As Rooney bids farewell to England, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been called up for the first time after scoring six goals this season in the English Premier League. "And we'll see in a few years how close I am".
