The 26-year-old Bournemouth striker is included after seven Premier League goals this season, while Rooney will earn his 120th cap in a special one-off appearance for England against the U.S., following his retirement from worldwide football.
Rooney has not played for his country for nearly two years and Press Association Sport understands he will make a late substitute appearance in a game which will be known officially as the Wayne Rooney Foundation International.
It was also confirmed that the 33-year-old would not wear his usual number 10 shirt and would not captain the side.
All in all, a roaring success. "It's a real good thing for everyone to be a part of", he added.
"It's a great experience for the younger players in our team".
"I understand people have got different opinions but, from knowing Wayne and what he's done for England, I don't see any problem with it". He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves?Читайте также: Russia's fighter jet intercepts US aircraft over Black Sea
After a career on home soil at Manchester United and Everton, Rooney is now in Major League Soccer with DC United.
Harry Kane said: "Yes of course".
"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.
"It is probably the send-off he deserves for what he has done for both English football and England". I know what it meant to Sir Bobby Charlton when he came to St George's and we named the pitch after him a few months ago.
Naming a 28-strong squad, Southgate also handed a first call-up to Bournemouth's in-form striker Callum Wilson, a recall to Everton defender Michael Keane, and retained Dortmund's Jadon Sancho. 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.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
