The former Manchester United star, who announced his global retirement 15 months ago, will train as normal with the rest squad before leaving the camp ahead of England's UEFA Nations League tie against Croatia on November 18.

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. Everyone loved him. He is a fantastic boy, fantastic player.

Ronaldo added: "He scored many goals, what can I say?"

Rooney, England's record goalscorer with 53 goals in 14 years with the Three Lions, moved to America in the summer when he joined Washington club DC United.

Few could have envisioned a better start under Sarri, whose players have nearly instantly adapted to his methods and expectations. In the middle of the park, the only sticking point is the choice between Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley.

England face a crucial UEFA Nations League match against Croatia a few days after the friendly against the United States, though Rooney is not expected to play any part in that game.

Wayne Rooney is in line to make a sensational, one-off return to the England national team when the Three Lions take on US at Wembley later this month. "I would like to thank (manager) Gareth Southgate and the FA for inviting me back and helping to support my foundation in the process". It should be the greatest honour and reward playing for your country but the reality is that the MLS is nowhere near the same level as the Premier League.

Rooney's last appearance for England came in November 2016 in a 3-0 victory over Scotland.

It has also been reported that the match will raise money for Rooney's charitable foundation.

His 12 goals in 21 DC appearances set up a meeting with Columbus Crew, but Rooney missed from the spot in DC's penalty shoot-out defeat following a 2-2 draw.

Across a 13-year global career, Rooney represented England at three World Cups and three European Championships.

The match between England and US will take place at Wembley on November 15.
