Gareth Southgate will stick with the youngsters when naming his England squad for next week's games against the United States and Croatia despite his decision to endorse the controversial recall of Wayne Rooney.

The match will be Rooney's 120th appearance for England and a final opportunity to add to the record 53 goals he has amassed so far.

Tottenham striker - and current Three Lions skipper - Kane sees differently, however, and when asked whether Rooney should take the armband against the United States, he said: "Yes, of course".

The report also claims that Southgate is pondering whether or not to call Jordan Henderson up, given that he has missed games through injury of late. "He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves".

The FA and Gareth Southgate have chosen to honour Rooney - the country's leading goalscorer - with a cameo appearance at Wembley in the upcoming worldwide friendly. "I guess that will depend on the circumstances of the game and the players that are out there, but I have no issue with that at all".

"Would I give him armband?" He was captain when I got into the squad.

"I understand that has caused debate but for me, it is a small way of appreciating what he has given to his country".

Southgate cited the examples of the worldwide tributes paid to Lukas Podolski, David Silva and Wesley Sneijder by Germany, Spain and Netherlands respectively in recent years to justify Rooney's selection, adding that he considers the national team's heritage a vital part of the culture he is trying to build.

The England boss said the idea was sprung from a similar tribute Germany gave to Lukas Podolski, admitting honouring former players is not an area the FA has been strong in over recent years. I know what it meant to Sir Bobby Charlton when he came to St George's and we named the pitch after him a few months ago.

Southgate revealed he wants to "protect" his core squad as much as possible in the friendly against the U.S. before they play Croatia in the UEFA Nations League - a competition the England manager insists he takes seriously.
