Blackburn's 1995 Premier League victor turned football pundit Chris Sutton has condemned the plan in his column for the Daily Mail, and says the match with the United States is nothing month than an exhibition. "If anything, this would convince me not to buy one".

"He scored many goals, what can I say?"

The 33-year-old, England's record scorer with 53 goals, will win a 120th cap in the comeback appearance on Nov. 15 - two years after his last worldwide match against Scotland in November 2016.

The D.C. United star will win his 120th cap in the game, which will raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation and other charities, such as children's charity NSPCC.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that DC United captain Wayne Rooney will reportedly make a return to the national team and captain the England national team against the USA.

"I would like to thank Gareth Southgate and The FA for inviting me back and helping to support my Foundation in the process".
