England paid their respects to long-term hero and servant Wayne Rooney on Thursday night, allowing him to play one last game for his beloved country.

USA took on the three lions in a one off charity friendly, with Rooney gifted a half an hour cameo to say goodbye to the fans.

Rooney didn’t manage to get on the scoresheet, but England did run away as 3-0 winners.

Tottenham star Harry Kane has taken over the England captain’s armband these days, and already has 19 goals for England at only 25 years of age.

Rooney scored 53 goals for his country in 120 appearances, making him England’s all-time top scorer, a record that Kane has his eyes on.

Harry has already achieved something for England that Wayne could not, leading his country to a World Cup semi-final, while taking home the golden boot.

ESPN report that Rooney has already tipped Kane to overtake his goal tally eventually.

They also reported that Kane replied: “It’s definitely possible but it’s still a fair bit away.

“I don’t like to set my targets that far ahead in the future because a lot of things can happen.

“We’ll see over the next few years how many goals I’ve got and hopefully I’m still fit and healthy and still getting picked by the manager.

“It’s definitely something that’s achievable but not something I’m thinking about too much right now.”
