Share

England captain Harry Kane has given his backing to the honouring of former skipper Wayne Rooney in an global friendly against the United States next week.

The former captain's one-off return for the Wayne Rooney Foundation global against the U.S. will dominate the manager's press conference this afternoon but Southgate is again planning to select a youthful party with Jadon Sancho and James Maddison keeping their places.

"It's a really good thing that everyone should be a part of".

It was also confirmed that the 33-year-old would not wear his usual number 10 shirt and would not captain the side.

Wales head coach Ryan Giggs has backed Wayne Rooney's "one-off" return to the England team, saying it is a chance to play tribute to an "iconic player".

"But I can't get too angry and upset if England want to give Rooney a send-off because we've treated our greatest players so badly in the past".

Tottenham striker - and current Three Lions skipper - Kane sees differently, however, and when asked whether Rooney should take the armband against the United States, he said: "Yes, of course". I don't know how long he is going to play for next Thursday, but it will be good to see him back out there.

"I'd have to say I don't think we've been brilliant at [honouring former players] over the years".

He is not in contention for the Nations League clash with Croatia three days later. You can come on with two minutes to go because you need a change; I've played when we've changed the whole team at half-time.

The 33-year-old, who now plays for DC United in Major League Soccer, has not represented the Three Lions in nearly two years. "There were a lot of experienced winners in the dressing room, and me and Wayne were close in age with similar backgrounds and we just got on and clicked", Fletcher told Sky Sports News.

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.
