Wayne Rooney is in line to come out of England retirement for a one-off appearance against the United States in an global friendly at Wembley later this month, Britain's Sun tabloid reported.

The 33-year-old forward has not played for his country since November 2016, having announced his worldwide retirement the following August with immediate effect.

Gareth Southgate has taken the surprise decision to recall Rooney, who retired from global football past year, for the friendly fixture at Wembley on 15 November.

The game will raise funds for the Wayne Rooney Foundation and the game could raise more than £500,000 for various children's charities. "I would like to thank Gareth Southgate and the Football Association for inviting me back and helping to support my foundation in the process", Rooney said in a statement.

Including him against the USA, so close to England's important Uefa Nations League fixture against Croatia a few days later, means that the occasion can turn into the "Wayne Rooney Show" and become a distraction.

"Playing for England was the greatest honour of my career - so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me".

Southgate said: "This tribute to Wayne is a unique opportunity that is befitting of our nation's record goalscorer. It's fitting the match will be against the United States of America". Trying to help others is a particular focus of mine now through my foundation.

As an England player, Rooney has won 71 games, drawn 29 times and lost just 19 of his matches at global level.

The player's rich vein of form, alongside his popularity among England supporters and the feeling of progress made under Southgate, have helped the FA with the decision.

The former Manchester United and Everton captain - England's all-time leading scorer with 53 goals - has not represented his country since lining up against Scotland at Wembley in November 2016.
