Wayne Rooney is set to come out of international retirement for England's friendly against the United States later this month to mark his contribution to the national team.

BBC reports that Rooney ‑ who is England and Manchester United's record goalscorer ‑ will feature for Gareth Southgate's side in a one‑ off appearance next Friday.

The 33‑year‑old, now playing in Major League Soccer with DC United, has not played for England in almost two years, but the match at Wembley a week on Friday is set to be his 120th senior appearance in an England shirt.
