But with Rooney ending his England career having made more appearances than any other outfield player, as well as eclipsing Sir Bobby Charlton's record of England goals, Southgate and the FA has agreed to give Rooney the honour of a farewell appearance, at the same time as handing supporters the opportunity to show their appreciation of the former England captain.

Rooney is understandably thrilled at the prospect of pulling on the Three Lions jersey one more time, saying: "I am truly humbled and hugely excited to play for England at Wembley again".

The match will be called The Wayne Rooney Foundation International in support of the striker's charity aiding disadvantaged children, with England manager Gareth Southgate naming the 33-year-old in his squad.

At the worldwide level, Rooney is already the most-capped outfield player in England history, and is the country's top scorer with 53 goals in 119 appearances to date. "It's fitting the match will be against the US".

Rooney guided his team DC United to the MLS play offs scoring 12 goals but they were dumped out by Columbus on penalties.

His last appearance for England came in a 3-0 win against Scotland in November 2016.

Former Everton and United forward Rooney scored 53 goals for England prior to announcing his retirement from global football in August 2017.

He made his global debut in 2003 against Australia and scored his first goal in a 2-1 victory over Macedonia later that year in a Euro 2004 qualification game.

Rooney won the majority of his worldwide caps while playing for Manchester United and was dropped by Southgate during his final year at Old Trafford, in early 2017.
