Wayne Rooney is coming out of retirement for one last England match

Wayne Rooney applauds the England fans

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 arches of Wembley will be lit up in gold - the colours of his charity - for the match.

He said at the time: "It was great that Gareth Southgate called me this week to tell me he wanted me back in the England squad for the upcoming matches".

Rooney, 33, joined D.C. this summer after a glittering career with Manchester United and Everton, as well as on the worldwide stage with England.

Every time I was selected as a player or captain was a real privilege and I thank everyone who helped me.

Playing for England has always been special to me.

Pant is expected to fulfil the wicket-keeping responsibilities while Karthik could take on one of the positions in the outfield. The Kolkata Knight Riders star, a crowd favourite at the Eden Gardens, has been ruled out of the entire series with an injury.

Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien, D.C. United Co-Chairman, said, "As a club, we are thrilled that Wayne will be honoured by the English FA after such a historic and record-setting career for the Three Lions. It's fitting that the match will be against the United States of America and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game".

Former Everton and United forward Rooney scored 53 goals in 119 England appearances - the most by any outfield player - prior to announcing his retirement from global football in August 2017.

He made his debut against Australia at West Ham's former stadium Upton Park in 2003 and scored his first goal in 2004 against Macedonia.

Including him against the United States, so close to England's important Uefa Nations League fixture against Croatia a few days later, means that the occasion can turn into the "Wayne Rooney Show" and become a distraction.

His last worldwide appearance was as captain in a 3-0 win over Scotland at Wembley in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in November 2016.

The game will serve as a final chance for Southgate to fine-tune ahead of England's Nations League crunch match with Croatia on Sunday November 18.
