Rooney excited for England farewell

"I am not asking people to agree with it".

The forward is not letting that background noise detract from a friendly that will support the Wayne Rooney Foundation, with the forward honoured to be recognised in a way that he hopes future stars will get the chance to follow. We had three managers in the end and it was hard.

While Keane went through a tough spell, he insists he used his experiences as a character-building exercise after overcoming a hairline fracture to the skull earlier this season.

On the Website of the club, he said, "I do not know how much I am going to play in the game. l will speak to Gareth Southgate (The manager of the club) and play for the time whatever he gives me".

"I learned a lot about myself".

"I'm not normally one to show my emotions that way, but when I scored the penalty against Switzerland it was hard to hold my emotions back".

"England is such a an incredible team, the likes of [Raheem] Sterling and [Marcus] Rashford, all these guys and ones I have been watching throughout the years and to be able to play against them, at Wembley, is insane".

Wayne Rooney hopes he will be the first of many England players to be honoured with an worldwide send-off and believes Harry Kane could one-day sign off with his goal-scoring record.

The 25-year-old, who has four caps to his name, struggled mightily as Everton went through three managers in his first season after his €29m summer move from Burnley.

"That's something he's always had since he was younger". So I've been lucky enough to play quite a lot with him, and see what a great player and great person he is. "But there were a few months when things were going really badly and I did not really want to go and do things out of the house".

Earns his 116th cap in September 2016 to make him England's most-capped outfield player.

A late goal from Patrick Reichelt gifted the Philippines a 1-0 win against Singapore in their second Group B match at the ongoing 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup on November 13.

"I thought they would be good enough to have a go at a World Cup, but maybe the next one (2022) rather than in Russian Federation". Personally I didn't think it was right to get in the way of that. "I'm sure he will".

"Playing on the squad for this game and see some old teammates, see Gareth and the coaching staff, and then obviously to play at Wembley for the last time will be a great moment", Rooney said. I had my first training session yesterday and it was odd getting in amongst the players at training. "The most important thing is, speaking to the FA, we thought it was right, and the players I've spoken to think it's right".
