Rooney deserves special final England day, says Antonio

"I wasn't playing, first of all".

And ahead of the historic encounter, the Manchester United legend has admitted the influence of Klopp and Guardiola has been telling, as their Golden generations' of the past failed to impress at previous World Cups and European championships.

With 53 strikes to choose from, the England captain faced a hard process in whittling away 47 of his efforts, with efforts against Argentina, Croatia and Poland making his top three.

The way his record-breaking worldwide career is being recognised in the Wayne Rooney Foundation global has divided opinion, which Southgate believes highlights the lack of appreciation for the DC United forward.

Wayne Rooney will wear the captain's armband and England number 10 shirt for the last time on a celebratory night that Gareth Southgate believes befits one of the country's best ever players.

"Playing on the squad for this game and see some old teammates, see Gareth and the coaching staff, and then obviously to play at Wembley for the last time will be a great moment", Rooney said. "As soon as he comes on I will give him the armband back", said the midfielder. The former captain will receive a guard of honour in the...

"And at that time they needed pace, that's when [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin came into the team and did so well because they needed pace in behind to create space for those types of players". "But I have been back there a few times and I will be back over the Christmas period, at a game to watch them. Hopefully he has felt that warmth from all of us and I know the reaction of the supporters will be very special to him", added Southgate.
