The former Manchester United star, who announced his global retirement 15 months ago, will train as normal with the rest squad before leaving the camp ahead of England's UEFA Nations League tie against Croatia on November 18.

"What he has done throughout his career, for club and country, he has been a special player since day one when he burst onto the scene at Everton".

"But I keep hearing managers and players complaining that there is too much football.And now we are to have a testimonial in mid-November".

Ronaldo added: "He scored many goals, what can I say?"

Rooney has scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for DC United during his short spell in MLS, while Ronaldo has seven goals in 13 outings for Juve.

The game will raise funds for the Wayne Rooney Foundation.

Former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton has criticised Gareth Southgate's decision to recall Wayne Rooney for a one-off cap against the USA.

Wayne Rooney will come out of global retirement temporarily to make a farewell appearance for England against the United States.

Unfortunately, the fairytale ended this week as Rooney missed a penalty in a 3-2 penalty shootout defeat to the Columbus Crew.

He said: "It was great that Gareth Southgate called me this week to tell me he wanted me back in the England squad for the upcoming matches".

Wayne Rooney has won more caps than any other England outfield player. "It's fitting that the match will be against the U.S. and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game".

Across a 13-year worldwide career, Rooney represented England at three World Cups and three European Championships.

Rooney, 33, joined D.C. this summer after a glittering career with Manchester United and Everton, as well as on the global stage with England.

The match between England and US will take place at Wembley on November 15.
