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.

Southgate revealed: "Wayne will come on with the No 10, there won't be a No 10 to start".

England take on United States of America at Wembley tonight in a friendly that will see Wayne Rooney bring his worldwide career to a close.

Manager Gareth Southgate added: "I don't want to pin an exact time on when Wayne comes on because you don't know how the flow of the game will go". As soon as he comes on tomorrow, I will be giving him that armband back.

"We've been talking about English players going out of their comfort zone, playing overseas, learning a different culture, and I think doing that has revitalised Wayne". "We think it is important to honour him for the achievements he has made throughout his career".

After displaying improvement with the famous 5-1 triumph over Germany, the Swede's tenure ended without reaching further than a quarter-final at a major tournament. We have spoken a lot about doing things our own way, we did that right through the summer.

After making history in becoming England's all time leading goalscorer on 8th September during a European Championship qualifier against Switzerland, Wayne Rooney was interviewed by the FA's official Youtube channel to select his favourite three England goals.

"We have a lot of respect for our former players, we know that the legacy is huge".

"It's been disappointing to see him (Wayne) nearly have to defend his inclusion".

"It's important for all of us as a group that he gets a good send-off". He was at the front and centre of England from the age of 17.

"I have stayed focused I have stayed dedicated and I have worked really hard. It is incredible to live your life and grow up in that spotlight and excel within it". Obviously, I spoke to the manager and it didn't look like I was going to play, so it was the right decision and the right time for me to go. Jadon Sancho, the Borussia Dortmund winger, will make his full debut having played the final 12 minutes of England's 0-0 draw in Croatia last month.

"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. The competition for places is really intense and we need that".
