Wayne Rooney farewell ticket sales will not go to player's foundation

"I think all the players respect Wayne's contribution and that he deserves the best possible send-off". I understand that's caused a lot of debate but it's a small way of appreciating what he's given to his country.
"There was a possibility around the Nigeria game [to honour him], but Wayne was adamant he didn't want to detract from the team and their preparations".
"Now we have the opportunity at Wembley to pay that tribute".
Southgate cited the examples of the global tributes paid to Lukas Podolski, David Silva and Wesley Sneijder by Germany, Spain and Netherlands respectively in recent years to justify Rooney's selection, adding that he considers the national team's heritage a vital part of the culture he is trying to build.
He said: "I like Wayne, I get on well with him and his record speaks for itself".
"I think it's great", Kane said after scoring twice for Tottenham Hotspur against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley on Tuesday to keep the London club's Champions League hopes alive.
And it's a good opportunity for him to see how he fits into the senior team'. It's a real good thing for everyone to be a part of.
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. "We have had some discussions about whether we should have squad numbers moving forwards".
"That's not to say that Wayne does not deserve a tribute but give him a presentation, don't just give caps away, which is wrong and also denies a young player a chance as well". It's a celebration game against America and I'm all for it.
That decision has been criticised in the English media with a number of exciting young prospects needing more game time to be tested at the worldwide level and the U.S. game seen as preparation for what could be a crucial Nations League decider against Croatia four days later.
Naming a 28-strong squad, Southgate also handed a first call-up to Bournemouth's in-form striker Callum Wilson, a recall to Evertondefender Michael Keane, and retained Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.
Rooney will win his 120th cap against the US at Wembley later this month. James Maddison and Mason Mount have dropped out because of injuries and the Everton defender Michael Keane is included for the first time in 12 months.
