Wayne Rooney getting an England cap ‘makes the game a circus’ - Redknapp

DC United forward Rooney will make his first global appearance for two years after it was confirmed he would be part of England's squad to face United States at Wembley.

"There have been ongoing discussions since Wayne retired about paying tribute to him and his England career", said Southgate, who added Rooney had declined an opportunity to be honoured before the World Cup so as not to take the attention away from those going to Russian Federation.

The global friendly, set to take place on November 15, has been dubbed The Wayne Rooney Foundation worldwide and some of the proceeds from the game will go towards the Manchester United great's charity.

Injuries and the fitness of other players may determine whether or not Southgate hands a shock call up to 18-year-old Nelson, who has been impressing in the Bundesliga. "I guess that will depend on the circumstances of the game and the players that are out there, but I have no issue with that at all".

"As the manager, my involvement was: 'Am I happy for him to play a part in the game?' Yes", said Southgate. He was captain when I got into the squad. I know what it meant to Sir Bobby Charlton when he came to St George's and we named the pitch after him a few months ago.

GL Peiris, a leading Rajapaksa backer, however said the no confidence motion can not be taken up in a hurry. The Tamil party's 15 votes could give Wickremesinghe's camp a decisive edge over Rajapaksa.

"I understand that's caused a lot of debate and conjecture but for me it's a small way of appreciating what he's given to the country". "I suppose they are trying to make up for past mistakes".

Rooney is the Three Lions' all-time leading goalscorer and a man assured of his place in English football folklore, but he has been in global retirement for over 12 months.

The Spurs striker said: "He deserves it".

Ever since I got here, Dez was nothing but a help for me", Elliott said. "I look forward to working with him". The former Dallas Cowboys receiver has more touchdowns (nine) than he does against any other team in the NFL.

"I've been in the unfortunate position of having to leave him out of a squad, but I'm pleased to be able to be a part of honouring what he's done for England".
