Harry Kane reacts to Wayne Rooney taking back England captaincy

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.

The former captain's one-off return for the Wayne Rooney Foundation global against the U.S. will dominate the manager's press conference this afternoon but Southgate is again planning to select a youthful party with Jadon Sancho and James Maddison keeping their places.

However, The FA have confirmed that fans will be able to make their own donations to the foundation on match day, though further details are not immediately available.

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.

All in all, a roaring success. I don't know how long he is going to play for next Thursday, but it will be good to see him back out there.

"I've worked with Wayne, played with Wayne, and he doesn't get recognised for what ability he still has and did have at his peak".

The 33-year-old, who is now on the books of MLS side D.C. United, will only figure against the U.S. at Wembley.

"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".

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".

Harry Kane said: "Yes of course".

And it's a good opportunity for him to see how he fits into the senior team'.

"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".

"I think all of the players would respect that Wayne's contribution deserves the best possible send-off", Southgate told a news conference after announcing his squad.
