Kane happy to honour Rooney in final England farewell

None of the gate receipts taken from Wayne Rooney's final performance for the England national team will be made available for his foundation, a report in The Times has revealed.

As for the match itself, the Guardian add that the general feeling within the actual England squad in the run-up is one of mild confusion, with Gareth Southgate torn over which shirt number to allocate to Rooney given that the 33-year-old isn't likely to start against the States but would like to wear his old No.10 jersey for the big occasion.

"There have been ongoing discussions since Wayne retired about paying tribute to him and his England career", said the manager, who added Rooney had declined an opportunity to be honoured ahead of the World Cup so as not to take the attention away from those going to Russian Federation.

Naming a 28-strong squad, Southgate also handed a first call-up to Bournemouth's in-form striker Callum Wilson, a recall to Everton defender Michael Keane, and retained Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

"Wayne Rooney has been the best England player of his generation, and his contribution deserves to be recognised", Hurst told Grosvenor Sport. "If he plays, of course he'll be the captain".

The return of record goalscorer Rooney has split opinion, with the 33-year-old set to collect a 120th cap in the November 15 friendly against the United States to honour his Three Lions career.

"I think it's great", Kane said after his two goals for club Tottenham against PSV kept their Champions League hopes alive.

"I'm glad that we'll see him in an England shirt one last time". He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

"I understand it. It's a celebration game against America and I'm all for it", said Wales manager Giggs, who spent a decade playing alongside Rooney and also later coached him at Old Trafford.

"It's a great experience to have for the younger players in our team". I think he's got 12 goals in 20 games, and it looks as if he's really enjoying life in America.

"We are a unusual country in that we bemoan the fact we haven't achieved as much as we'd like and then we have a player who should be held in the highest regard and we are spending a lot of time justifying giving him that tribute".
