Harry Kane reacts to Wayne Rooney taking back England captaincy

ColumbusCrewSC on Twitter

It was announced by the FA on Monday that DC United captain Rooney would return to Wembley next month for his 120th and final England appearance against the United States.

Wilson, who has six goals in 11 Premier League matches this season, joins Jadon Sancho and - for the United States of America game only - Wayne Rooney among the forward chosen by Southgate.

But England's most-capped player, Peter Shilton, accused the FA of getting it "completely wrong" by offering Rooney - who retired from worldwide football a year ago - what is effectively a testimonial appearance.

"He deserves it. He was a great captain for us".

He added: "I've talked a lot to the players about the important of the shirt, the history, we've brought former players back in to speak to the squad, to present shirts". 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?

"In terms of the captaincy, the last game he played with me, Jordan Henderson ran over and gave him the armband when he came on". It's a great experience to have for the younger players in our team. "So I think everyone should get right behind it, and it'll be a good send-off".

Bryce Harper turned down 10-year, $300M offer from Nats
It's not a surprise that the Nationals would try to make sure Harper didn't hit free agency, but this is still pretty interesting. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $US27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes).

"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".

Fletcher has said that it became clear quite early that Rooney would go on to become a United great, with the only fear being that the likes of Madrid would attempt to take him from the English giants.

Kane has scored 19 goals for his country in 34 appearances and could easily break Rooney's record.

"I'd have to say I don't think we've been brilliant at [honouring former players] over the years".

"Having said that, we've given caps to people who haven't earned them in the past - I'm not going to name names - and you do wonder how on earth they got them".
