Wayne Rooney farewell ticket sales will not go to player's foundation

08 November 2018

The global friendly, set to take place on November 15, has been dubbed The Wayne Rooney Foundation worldwide and some of the proceeds from the game will go towards the Manchester United great's charity.

England's decision to recall Wayne Rooney for a friendly clash with the United States has sparked a "circus", says Harry Redknapp, but he is not the first player to be handed an undeserved cap.

The report also claims that Southgate is pondering whether or not to call Jordan Henderson up, given that he has missed games through injury of late.

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. "I guess that it will depend on the circumstances of the game and the players who are out there but I have no issue with that".

Southgate did not confirm whether it was his decision to pick Rooney in his 28-player squad, when asked if there was a business motive to sell tickets for the match at Wembley.

The Football Association announced on Sunday that Rooney would be awarded his 120th cap as a tribute to his England career which appeared to have come to an end when he retired from global football in August 2017.

"Would I give him armband?"

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. "He's a threat running in behind defences, so this will be a good opportunity to look at him and try to see how he fits in to what we are trying to do".

"All other players would respect Wayne's contribution deserves the best possible send off". "I understand that has caused a lot of debate and conjecture but for me it is a small way of appreciating what he has done for his country".

England staff have checked on Michael Keane in recent weeks, with the Everton defender pushing for an global recall.

"He's been a tremendous servant, the number of tournaments he's played in, to be our record goalscorer to achieve that is incredible".
