Wayne Rooney will captain England against U.S., says Harry Kane

Wayne Rooney is an iconic player says Ryan Giggs

Rooney will win his 120th cap as a substitute in next week's friendly against the United States at Wembley in a move created to celebrate his career and promote his charity foundation.

Rooney is to come out of worldwide retirement to make his 120th and final England appearance against the United States at Wembley on November 15.

The former England captain has not represented his country for nearly two years but the game at Wembley has been branded the Wayne Rooney Foundation International, with the Football Association helping to promote his charity.

Shortly after the announcement it was also reported that the FA would donate the match funds to the Wayne Rooney Foundation, as well as light up Wembley's arches in gold; the colour used by the charity.

Instead, the former Manchester United frontman is just expected to make a brief cameo as a substitute at the home of football. He was a great captain for us.

He said: "I like Wayne, I get on well with him and his record speaks for itself".

"I think it's great", Kane said after his two goals for club Tottenham against PSV kept their Champions League hopes alive. If he plays, of course he'll be the captain.

"It's a really good thing that everyone should be a part of". He was a fantastic player for England and it's fine by me if we want to celebrate his achievements.

"I've not spoken to Gareth (Southgate) too much about how he's going to do it when we play but it'll be great to see him again and I'm sure he's looking forward to seeing a few of the boys". It's a great experience to have for the younger players in our team.
