       Rooney trained with the England squad at St. George's Park on Monday evening

The former Manchester United striker will win his last worldwide cap in a friendly against United States at Wembley on Thursday.

A year after announcing his retirement from the global game (as England's all-time leading goalscorer with 53 goals), Rooney has been granted an opportunity to say thanks to the England fans by current boss Gareth Southgate and the FA.

Becomes the youngest player to play for England in February 2003 at 17 years and 111 days in a friendly defeat against Australia.

Sarachan - who has been in interim charge of the United States for over a year - was equally positive about Rooney's impact on MLS, saying: It's been what I thought it would be like with a guy like Wayne Rooney.

"Whether people agree with it or not, it's something that's happening", he added.

"The one that stands out for me is the goal against Switzerland to break the record - a special moment for me, and something I'll always look back on", he said.

"If I was in a position where this game was going to take the record off Peter Shilton, for instance, I would never have played in the game", Rooney said.

"Pakistan Can't Even Manage Its 4 Provinces": Shahid Afridi On Kashmir
Afridi, however, took to Twitter to clarify his stand and accused the media of misconstruing his comments. Afridi can be heard saying in the video that "I say Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir.

"I'm not normally one to show my emotions that way, but when I scored the penalty against Switzerland it was hard to hold my emotions back".

As it was, Rooney announced his global retirement in the wake of Southgate speaking to him about joining the squad for matches against Malta and Slovakia shortly after his return to Everton in August 2017.

Shilton claimed Rooney's return was "devaluing" an England call-up. Every player's mindset will be the same, we all want to win.

The 25-year-old, who has four caps to his name, struggled mightily as Everton went through three managers in his first season after his €29m summer move from Burnley. We maybe never had the squad, we had the startling 11 which was very good but going into the tournament we maybe never had that back-up.

"I'll speak to Gareth before we meet up". We had stayed in contact, we have had the idea for 12 months. It was nice to see them and the staff, and the reception they gave me was fantastic.

"I think they've got superstars", Rooney told a news conference. "Out of the England managers I've had he's probably the only one who's really brought so many through as a group and he deserves a lot of credit for that".
