Wayne Rooney deserves a great England send-off, says Harry Kane

The game has been named the "Wayne Rooney Foundation International", to help raise funds for the former Manchester United striker's charity.

The Football Association has insisted Rooney will not take the armband off Kane for the friendly at Wembley and will only make a cameo appearance.

It is believed that Rooney, 33, is not due to start the game, nor will he be given his usual number 10 shirt for the occasion - with his appearance on the bench also meaning it is unlikely he will wear the captain's armband on his return.

"He deserves it. He was a great captain for us".

He said: "I like Wayne, I get on well with him and his record speaks for itself". If he plays, of course he'll be the captain.

Rooney's England return - farce or fitting tribute?

"I think it's great", Kane said after his two goals for club Tottenham against PSV kept their Champions League hopes alive. Wayne is one the greatest ever players to play for England, the greatest goalscorer to play for England, so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

'I'm sure he'll be looking forward to seeing a few of the boys. It's a great experience to have for the younger players in our team. "So I think everyone should get right behind it, and it'll be a good send-off".

Rooney scored 53 goals in 119 games for England from 2003 to 2016.

However, the current England captain says he still has a long way to go to catch his predecessor. 'Hopefully I can keep fit and healthy and score a few more goals and we'll see in a few years how close I am'.
