'It's completely wrong!' - Rooney's England return outrages Shilton

The 33-year-old announced his international retirement over a year ago

Rooney, the former United and Everton forward, who scored 53 goals for the Three Lions, announced his retirement from global football in August 2017.

Blackburn's 1995 Premier League victor turned football pundit Chris Sutton has condemned the plan in his column for the Daily Mail, and says the match with the U.S. is nothing month than an exhibition.

The match - which will be held at Wembley and will raise funds for the Wayne Rooney Foundation - will be the DC United forward's 120th for England.

"It is surprising that Gareth Southgate has agreed to this".

"This smacks of a gimmick to drum up interest in a friendly against a side who did not qualify for the World Cup and to sell tickets".

Los Angeles is 3-5 to start the season after three straight losses marked the beginning of LeBron James's time as a Laker. After that, the Lakers return home to face the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

It is understood Rooney's involvement with England for the fixture will be made official in the coming days.

"I miss him. The future, nobody knows, maybe we'll play one day together again".

But Shilton, who holds the record for the most England appearances with 125, disagrees with Rooney's recall.

However, his inclusion is a huge surprise and will leave Southgate and the Football Association open to the accusation that they have devalued playing for England given it is a one-off and Rooney retired from worldwide football past year.

So when I arrived back in England I was kind of afraid, not because of Rooney but because of England supporters.

Chelsea had the last laugh with the third goal from Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas in the 41st minute. Chelsea winger, Willian Borges da Silva.

Rooney retired with relatively little fanfare despite his 119 caps and record 53 goals, but the match would give England fans the chance to say a "fond farewell".

He wrote on Twitter: "I don't agree with giving Wayne Rooney a cap against United States of America, caps should be given on merit!"

"Playing for England was the greatest honor of my career - so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me".

"Given Wayne retired from worldwide football 15 months ago, if the FA really wanted to give him a send-off, why could they not invite him to the game as a guest?"
