Wayne Rooney's one-off return to the England squad in a charity friendly against United States of America has been branded "wrong" and "backwards" by former Three Lions star Peter Shilton.
Rooney's last game for the Three Lions was against Scotland at Hampden Park previous year but the former Manchester United star will be looking forward to get a proper farewell match against the Americans.
The 33-year-old has not played for the Three Lions since a 3-0 victory over Scotland in November 2016.
The match will be called The Wayne Rooney Foundation International in support of the striker's charity aiding disadvantaged children, with England manager Gareth Southgate naming the 33-year-old in his squad.
The match against the United States is also expected to raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation, and will provide England supporters with the chance to give the country's all-time leading scorer a proper send-off.
The DC United striker, who retired from global football in August 2017, will make a one-off comeback in the fund-raising friendly to honour a record-breaking worldwide career, according to The Sun.
"Playing for England was the greatest honor of my career - so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me".
It is understood Rooney's involvement with England for the fixture will be made official in the coming days.
Roney's last England appearance came against Scotland and Hampden Park, but after the game he announced his worldwide retirement.
Rooney, despite being England captain for several years, will not be captain against the U.S. as Southgate looks to keep some sort of consistency. Their season ended on Thursday night when they suffered a penalty shootout defeat to Columbus Crew in the first round of the play-offs.
Southgate said: "This tribute to Wayne is a unique opportunity that is befitting of our nation's record goalscorer".
