The 26-year-old Bournemouth striker is included after seven Premier League goals this season, while Rooney will earn his 120th cap in a special one-off appearance for England against the United States, following his retirement from worldwide football.

Rooney retired from global duty in August 2017 after 119 caps and a record 53 goals, and his England career is set to be honoured by a final, further cap against the U.S. at Wembley next Thursday with a substitute appearance.

Rooney has not played for his country for nearly two years and Press Association Sport understands he will make a late substitute appearance in a game which will be known officially as the Wayne Rooney Foundation International.

"I really think it's important that the former players feel part of what we're doing with England".

"Wayne was one of our greatest ever England players".

Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher says that the club "were worried" that Wayne Rooney would move to Real Madrid.

After a career on home soil at Manchester United and Everton, Rooney is now in Major League Soccer with DC United. I don't know how long he is going to play for next Thursday, but it will be good to see him back out there.

Harry Kane said: "Yes of course".

He told the BBC: "I think if he was picked on merit, fair enough".

Goalkeeper Peter Shilton, who with 125 caps is the only player to have represented England more times than Rooney, and ex-captain Alan Shearer both agreed that Rooney's achievements deserve honouring - but that should not extend to him playing in the match.

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson and Brighton defender Lewis Dunk have been handed call-ups by Southgate for the friendly against the USA and the UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia.

He said: "I like Wayne, I get on well with him and his record speaks for itself". You can come on with two minutes to go because you need a change; I've played when we've changed the whole team at half-time.

Wilson, who has received his first call, has started the new Premier League season in the form of his life, registering six goals and four assists in 11 appearances to help Bournemouth surge to sixth in the table.
