Harry Kane: Rooney should be England captain on Wembley farewell

Rooney's England return is 'completely wrong', blasts Shilton

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

Despite calling the match "The Wayne Rooney Foundation International", The Times report that The FA will not be passing on a single penny of the gate receipts (takings of around £3million are expected) to the player's eponymous organisation, nor do they plan to donate a fixed lump sum.

As soon as the announcement of Rooney's return to the squad was announced a number of fans were curious whether he will get to wear the captain's armband.

"I am still able to look to the future with the squad we've picked, but we've talked a lot about the history of the shirt".

"There have been ongoing discussions since Wayne retired about paying tribute to him and his England career", said the manager, who added Rooney had declined an opportunity to be honoured ahead of the World Cup so as not to take the attention away from those going to Russian Federation.

Southgate says the criticism of the Football Association's decision to honour Rooney has been a "disappointment".

We went to Germany and played when they honoured (Lukas) Podolski. "If he plays, of course he'll be the captain".

"He has earned the right to that cap over a period of over 10 years and six major tournaments with England and to be the record goalscorer".

Treu appeared via video in court Tuesday afternoon for an initial appearances on 11 counts, including four counts of homicide. Treu and the passenger told police they had been "huffing," or intentionally inhaling chemical fumes, police have said.

"It's a really good thing that everyone should be a part of".

The 33-year-old, who now plays for DC United in Major League Soccer, has not represented the Three Lions in nearly two years.

"I think it's great". "Wayne was one of our greatest ever England players. With this opportunity, it is possible and I am sure the crowd will give him the opportunity he deserves".

"I was quite happy for the tribute to be before the World Cup but Wayne did not want to detract from the team at that time, so now we have the opportunity to pay that tribute".

"I think it's great", Kane said after his two goals for club Tottenham against PSV kept their Champions League hopes alive.

"But I can understand why some people might think it makes the game a bit of a circus - and England have got an important game (a crucial Nations League decider against Croatia) three days later".

Former Everton and United forward Rooney scored 53 goals in 119 England appearances. "And we'll see in a few years how close I am".
