England squad: Gareth Southgate reveals why Callum Wilson has earned call up

  • Wayne Rooney is an iconic player says Ryan Giggs

As for the match itself, the Guardian add that the general feeling within the actual England squad in the run-up is one of mild confusion, with Gareth Southgate torn over which shirt number to allocate to Rooney given that the 33-year-old isn't likely to start against the States but would like to wear his old No.10 jersey for the big occasion. He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

"I think it's great", Kane said after scoring twice for Tottenham Hotspur against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley on Tuesday to keep the London club's Champions League hopes alive.

"I understand it's caused a lot of debate and conjecture, but it's a way of appreciating what he's given". "I'm completely comfortable with the situation".

The England manager said he had been surprised by the negative reaction to Rooney's inclusion but cited the example of Lukas Podolski, who was honoured in a similar fashion by Germany during last year's friendly against Southgate's side. "To actually give him a game in what is a proper England global is completely wrong, in my opinion".

"Now we have the opportunity at Wembley to pay that tribute". "That would depend on the circumstances and who's out there, but I've no issue with that at all".

It's also not clear if the early vote in key states is showing up to support Trump and Republicans or Democrats. If you can't reach the voting area because of barriers or other reasons, you can opt for curbside voting.

Southgate says the criticism of the Football Association's decision to honour Rooney has been a "disappointment".

In terms of the value of caps, it is very hard to be precise on that. This fixture is an opportunity to learn about some new players; we then have the game with Croatia which is important to us and I want to protect that squad as much as possible in the first game.

"I think it should be appropriate that people are not heading for the tubes before he comes on, and also we have got out of the game what we wanted and not take someone off too early".

"We are a odd country in that we bemoan the fact we haven't achieved as much as we'd like and then we have a player who should be held in the highest regard and we are spending a lot of time justifying giving him that tribute".

"Part of being a footballer is showing the resilience that would be commonplace among the squad, coming back form setbacks whether that's through rejection or injury", said Southgate.
