Rooney, a record goalscorer for both Manchester United and England, has not played worldwide football for almost two years.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has revealed that the 'Carrington quintuplet' a group of special players "controlled the Manchester United dressing room" during Sir Alex Ferguson reign at Old Trafford.

Sources had told ESPN FC of the plans on Sunday, and later in the day the FA said in a statement: "England's fixture against the United States of America is to be called The Wayne Rooney Foundation International in support of the legend's charitable interests". It should be the greatest honour and reward playing for your country but the reality is that the MLS is nowhere near the same level as the Premier League.

Having made his global debut in 2003 as England's youngest ever player, Rooney surpassed Bobby Charlton as his country's leading scorer in 2015.

It is understood Rooney's involvement with England for the fixture will be made official in the coming days. "It's fitting the match will be against the US". Trying to help others is a particular focus of mine now through my foundation. "The foundation allows me to give something back to four charities, all of whom do hugely important work".

Sarri tells Moses he is free to leave Chelsea
Such rotation was unheard of during his time at Napoli, but Sarri is keen to use the full depth of his squad given the demands of English football.

The 33-year-old, who now plays for MLS side DC United, has not played for England in nearly two years.

Unfortunately, the fairytale ended this week as Rooney missed a penalty in a 3-2 penalty shootout defeat to the Columbus Crew.

Gareth Southgate phased Rooney out of his plans, leading to the striker's retirement, but the England manager is pleased to be welcoming the 33-year-old temporarily back into the fold.

"We all look forward to the occasion and lending support to a number of good causes through the Wayne Rooney Foundation".
