Ronaldo and Rooney to link-up once again

Wayne Rooney is in line to come out of England retirement for a one-off appearance against the United States in an global friendly at Wembley later this month, Britain's Sun tabloid reported.

And the former Manchester United striker will be given the captain's armband for his 120th cap in a farewell game for the 33-year-old.

But there are rumours that the former Manchester United striker is in line to return to the Three Lions fold as a one-off in the friendly clash with US at Wembley on November 15.

The match against the United States is also expected to raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation, and will provide England supporters with the chance to give the country's all-time leading scorer a proper send-off.

"I would like to thank Gareth Southgate and The FA for inviting me back and helping to support my Foundation in the process".

However, his inclusion is a huge surprise and will leave Southgate and the Football Association open to the accusation that they have devalued playing for England given it is a one-off and Rooney retired from global football a year ago.

It is understood Rooney's involvement with England for the fixture will be made official in the coming days. Trying to help others is a particular focus of mine now through my foundation.

"This tribute to Wayne is a unique opportunity that is befitting of our nation's record goalscorer".

Rooney, despite being England captain for several years, will not be captain against the United States of America as Southgate looks to keep some sort of consistency.

Neither Podolski nor Sneijder were out of global football for as long as Rooney, 33, who announced his England retirement in August 2017 after turning down the chance to be part of the squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia.

"The connection between the FA and former England players is something that has always been very important to me", Southgate said.
