Wayne Rooney is set to come out of worldwide retirement and captain Gareth Southgate's England side when they face the United States Men's National Team next month.

Former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton has criticised Gareth Southgate's decision to recall Wayne Rooney for a one-off cap against the USA.

The pair spent five years together at Old Trafford prior to the Portuguese forward's move to Real Madrid in 2009, winning three Premier League titles, two EFL Cups, the FA Cup and Champions League. Rooney will also be training with the squad as they prepare for their Nations League game v Croatia, although he is not set to feature in that one.

"I am truly humbled and hugely excited to play for England at Wembley again, ” said Rooney".

There is a school of thought that the FA do not allow England's greatest players a dignified exit from global football but no-one can accuse them of not treating Rooney well.

Rooney's last appearance for England came in November 2016 in a 3-0 victory over Scotland.

"But England play Croatia in the Nations League three days after this United States of America match, so turning it into a testimonial means Gareth's players will not be preparing properly for the important game which follows it", Shearer added.

"You would think Gareth Southgate would need this match to prepare for the future, but clearly not".

The team went out on penalties to Columbus Crew.

Rooney, who has scored 53 goals for England, will make a brief cameo towards the end of the Wembley clash in a move created to commemorate the legendary striker's global career.

The Wayne Rooney Foundation focuses on improving the lives of disadvantaged children.

Southgate added: 'Acknowledging the Three Lions legacy has been a major part of our journey with this current group of young players.
