The 33-year-old, who had retired from international football in August 2017, has made a comeback as he is now part of the England squad that will face the United States on Thursday in the friendly.
The veteran striker was included in the squad by coach Gareth Southgate as the former captain prepares for his England send-off at Wembley Stadium.
The game will be called ‘The Wayne Rooney Foundation International’ as the fans get the chance to honour his international career.
The striker has confirmed that the match against the USA will be his last for England.

“It will be my last game,” he said.
“My form has been good in the States and if I got called up because of that then it would be a different situation, but this will be my last game.”
And England’s all-time leading goalscorer has made it clear that he will finish his club career at DC United amid speculation that the United legend could return to Europe.
“I made the decision to go to the States and as you well know when I make a decision I tend to stick with it,” Rooney said.
“It’s important to me that I give my full commitment to DC United. I will finish my career there.”
“I’ve seen talk about a loan move back here but I’m not prepared to do that.”
