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

So when I arrived back in England I was kind of afraid, not because of Rooney but because of England supporters.

But the 33-year-old, now based in the United States where he plays for Major League Soccer side DC United in Washington, is set to wear the Three Lions shirt once again for the Wembley fixture on November 15.

Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted that a reunion with former Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney could be on the cards before their illustrious playing careers are brought to a close. Rooney will also be training with the squad as they prepare for their Nations League game v Croatia, although he is not set to feature in that one. "It's fitting that the match will be against the U.S. and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game".

"I have been hugely impressed with the progress of this young England team".

"With players like that, you have to be a sponge, you have to think "I am going to get a little bit from that".

Predicted line-up against Derby County: Ruben Loftus-Cheek to continue recovery?
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is now enjoying the best goalscoring spell of his career, netting in two consecutive games for the first time. However, the Blues are confident Hazard will be fit to return against Palace at the weekend.
