Darren Fletcher: 'Manchester United anxious Wayne Rooney would join Real Madrid'

Wayne Rooney is an iconic player says Ryan Giggs

Talks about Rooney, 33, coming out of global retirement to receive his 120th cap have been ongoing for a year, Southgate confirmed, but the striker did not want his appearance to distract players ahead of the World Cup.

Tottenham striker - and current Three Lions skipper - Kane sees differently, however, and when asked whether Rooney should take the armband against the United States, he said: "Yes, of course".

"Wayne Rooney finished with England, Gareth Southgate moved on and I don't agree with this at all".

Kane also thinks the decision to bring Rooney back into the squad is a fitting way to honour England's record goalscorer.

He will not be involved in England's final UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia three days later.

Zion Williamson Could Be Greatest Player In Duke History, Says Dahntay Jones
The game marked the first time Kentucky faced a ranked opponent in a season opener since a 79-71 overtime loss to Clemson in 1995. Barrett led the way with 33 points on 13-of-26 shooting from the field and knocked down three of the Blue Devils' 12 3-pointers.

"I understand that's caused a lot of debate and conjecture but for me it's a small way of appreciating what he's given to the country".

England staff have checked on Michael Keane in recent weeks, with the Everton defender pushing for an worldwide recall. We have an opportunity with the game at Wembley to pay tribute. "It's a real good thing for everyone to be a part of", he added.

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. "But hopefully I can keep fit and healthy and score a few more goals". We haven't decided on that at this time, so he wouldn't wear No. 10 because he won't start the game. "I guess that it will depend on the circumstances of the game and the players who are out there but I have no issue with that". 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.

Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard and Fabian Delph are all back in the 28-man group after missing the October fixtures through injury, while Southgate has also chose to take another look at Everton defender Michael Keane.
