  • Rooney to wear 10 shirt, captain's armband in England farewell

A lot of the attention in the build-up to Thursday's friendly has been around the decision to award Wayne Rooney the chance to wave farewell to the worldwide scene, and while England's record-goalscorer will take the armband at some point on the night, it will be Delph who leads his country for the first time.

But Gareth Southgate and his impressive, youthful squad do not deserve to have this foisted on them.

"Very few people in the world can appreciate what that feels like, very different to run of the mill players like me who played for England". "Whatever he wants me then to play I'm happy to do so".

Wayne Rooney will take the captain's armband when he comes on to make his final global appearance against the US at Wembley on Thursday.

Rooney made a romantic return to boyhood club Everton last season, scoring 10 league goals.

Rooney will also get a guard of honour.

"Our financial strength enables us to continue to attract and retain top players and to invest in our academy, as we look to drive the success on the pitch that the club and our fans expect", Woodward said.

"Obviously, you wish, the ideal situation was staying there and finishing your career there, but football changes". It would have been nice to have done it at Old Trafford.

"I've never played there, the only time I've been to Wembley was to watch Coventry in the EFL Trophy final [in 2016-17] when I was injured".

"The fans give me a great reception every time I go back and when I went back with Everton".

The former club captain departed for boyhood side Everton in July a year ago after struggling to find regular first-team football under Jose Mourinho, before leaving England to join DC United in June.

"I know there is a debate over foreign managers in the Premier League but I believe what they're doing for the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker, players like that, has given them a massive amount of knowledge of how to play the game". I had a new opportunity to go and play in the States. But it was the right time.

While Thursday's match will bring the curtain down on Rooney's England career, Southgate will hand out a "few debuts" to others.
