Rooney's England return is 'completely wrong', blasts Shilton

Wayne Rooney will be in the England squad to face USA but who will be in yours Wayne Rooney will be in the England squad to face USA but who will be in yours

Dismissing suggestions Rooney would be handed his long-time number-10 shirt, Southgate regardless revealed he would have "no issue" if he again wore the captain's armband, and his belief that the national team's setup has too often overlooked great former players. "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.

Ryan Giggs has backed the shock England return of former Manchester United colleague Wayne Rooney by applauding it as an opportunity to recognise an "iconic player".

"It's a shame because we want it to be a fitting tribute to an outstanding player who has often, I think, been undervalued in terms of how well he played for England", he said.

Shilton - England's all-time record appearance maker - is furious with the decision to recall Rooney, accusing the FA of "giving away caps".

"I understand people have got different opinions but, from knowing Wayne and what he's done for England, I don't see any problem with it". He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

The FA's controversial decision has prompted accusations that Rooney's farewell call-up is a mere ruse to sell more tickets for the match, while others have suggested that the 33-year-old's involvement could derail the momentum of Southgate's squad ahead of a crucial UEFA Nations League game against Croatia.

"That lineage and heritage of the shirt and the team is important to me because I think whether you join a club or (play for) your country you need to know the history of that shirt and the importance of it - then you are not playing for the name on the back but for the crest on the front".

Although these plans are bound to come in for criticism, England defender Kyle Walker has defended them: "I think it is good".

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.

Former Everton and United forward Rooney scored 53 goals in 119 England appearances. "We've not been brilliant at that over the years".
