Gareth Southgate confirms Wayne Rooney will not start for England against USA

TimbersFC on Twitter

The former captain's one-off return for the Wayne Rooney Foundation worldwide against the USA will dominate the manager's press conference this afternoon but Southgate is again planning to select a youthful party with Jadon Sancho and James Maddison keeping their places.

Southgate confirmed that Rooney will not wear the No. 10 shirt against the US, but would not be drawn on whether England's all-time leading goalscorer will wear the captain's armband when he plays.

Rooney has scored 53 worldwide goals and made his last England appearance in a 3-0 victory over Scotland in November 2016.

England's decision to recall Wayne Rooney for a friendly clash with the United States has sparked a "circus", says Harry Redknapp, but he is not the first player to be handed an undeserved cap. He was a great captain for us.

"He was the captain when I first got into the squad".

Harry Kane said: "Yes of course". Wayne is one the greatest ever players to play for England, the greatest goalscorer to play for England, so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

Gomez is expected to be named in Southgate's team if he is fit to play, given his form for Liverpool and England this season.

"It's been two years since Wayne last played, England are on a new threshold and have just had a great World Cup but are going backwards with this. So I think everyone should get right behind it, and it'll be a good send-off".

Kane has scored 19 times so far in his England career - 34 goals shy of Rooney's current record of 53, but was non-committal on whether he has an eye on surpassing that tally.

Injuries and the fitness of other players may determine whether or not Southgate hands a shock call up to 18-year-old Nelson, who has been impressing in the Bundesliga.

"I'm still able to look to the future in terms of the squad I was able to pick and the things I want to see".
