He is being drafted back into the fold for a fixture which will help to generate funds for his charitable foundation, but Redknapp has questioned the need for him to figure on the field in that game.

As soon as the announcement of Rooney's return to the squad was announced a number of fans were curious whether he will get to wear the captain's armband.

If Kane is on the pitch against the USA at Wembley when Rooney makes his entrance, he is likely to hand the armband over to the former Manchester United and Everton striker.

Southgate did not rule out the possibility of the former England captain wearing the armband again.

"He deserves it. He was a great captain for us".

"Wayne Rooney finished with England, Gareth Southgate moved on and I don't agree with this at all".

Shilton - England's all-time record appearance maker - is furious with the decision to recall Rooney, accusing the FA of "giving away caps".

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

"It's a great experience for the younger players in our team".

"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".

"Everyone should get right behind it and it will be a great send-off".

Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has said that the club "were worried" that Wayne Rooney would move to Real Madrid as the Englishman developed at Old Trafford.

Fletcher has said that it became clear quite early that Rooney would go on to become a United great, with the only fear being that the likes of Madrid would attempt to take him from the English giants. "But hopefully I can keep fit and healthy and score a few more goals".

"I'm still able to look to the future in terms of the squad I was able to pick and the things I want to see".
