The Wayne Rooney Foundation is not set to receive any of the gate receipts from England's upcoming Wembley friendly against the United States - but will be supported by the Football Association in other ways, Press Association Sport understands.

None of the gate receipts taken from Wayne Rooney's final performance for the England national team will be made available for his foundation, a report in The Times has revealed.

Wayne Rooney will wear the England jersey one more time, in a farewell friendly against the U.S. at Wembley. "There were a lot of experienced winners in the dressing room, and me and Wayne were close in age with similar backgrounds and we just got on and clicked", Fletcher told Sky Sports News. "So if he plays, of course he'll be the captain", said Kane.

The return of record goalscorer Rooney has split opinion, with the 33-year-old set to collect a 120th cap in the November 15 friendly against the U.S. to honour his Three Lions career.

"It's a really good thing that everyone should be a part of". This is a chance for not only a great player, but an iconic player and top goalscorer.

A draw with Croatia followed by a victory over Spain leaves England waiting on the result of the meeting between their League A Group Four rivals before Southgate knows what is at stake in his final Nations League game.

After a career on home soil at Manchester United and Everton, Rooney is now in Major League Soccer with DC United.

"It's a great experience for the younger players in our team".

Giggs famously played until he was 40 as he went on to make a record 963 appearances for United - and he feels Rooney will want to play for as long as possible. "He's a threat running in behind defences, so this will be a good opportunity to look at him and try to see how he fits in to what we are trying to do".

As Rooney bids farewell to England, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been called up for the first time after scoring six goals this season in the English Premier League.
