Rooney says farewell as England beat United States

Rooney says farewell as England beat United States

Jesse Lingard's stunner, and debut goals for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Callum Wilson sealed the win for England.

Wilson said: "Wayne is a legend for England, he has achieved so much throughout his career and to share the pitch with him was a great honour".

"Before the injury, he gave me a bit of stick on Match of the Day for missing a few chances but that is what he is there for and he has been very supportive". His chapter has obviously ended now and mine is just starting. I remember sitting there thinking: "'It can't be that simple!' That's always stuck me when I've gone through hard moments".

Rooney came on to a standing ovation in the 58th minute with England already 2-0 up thanks to first-half goals from Jesse Lingard and Trent Alexander-Arnold, but a combination of Guzan's saves and last-ditch US defending prevented the 33-year-old from marking the occasion by getting on the scoresheet himself.

"I thought the lads were brilliant, played a great game".

"Even when I was at Coventry [City], playing in the Conference [National League], I always said I'd play at Wembley for England", Wilson added. I want to thank the FA and Gareth for giving me this opportunity, and the players.




Such was the debate stirred by England's most capped outfield player being recalled after two years off the team to have this ceremonial farewell, 15 years after his debut. "I think there was a time at Manchester United [2006/07 season] where I was scoring goals, and then for some reason I couldn't score", Rooney said.

"I've never played there, the only time I've been to Wembley was to watch Coventry in the EFL Trophy final [in 2016-17] when I was injured".

"It's a great group of young players, who have got a very bright future and they'll go close to being the next team to bring a trophy home for England".

England's greatest ever goalscorer and former captain was also honoured before kick-off with a guard of honour and the presentation of a plaque bearing a golden Three Lions badge by current skipper Harry Kane. "You saw some moments of real quality".

"We wanted to use this game to look at young players", he told BBC Radio 5 live. "We haven't had that discussion because of his parade, but we'll be making that point".

Henderson was drafted into the match by manager Gareth Southgate as a second half substitute for Tottenham star Dele Alli, as a number of England's more senior stars were rested.
