Peter Shilton criticises Wayne Rooney's England recall

Wayne Rooney applauds the England fans

The duo have also clashed at the global level during the 2006 World Cup when Ronaldo engineered Rooney's sending off following his stamp on Ricardo Carvalho.

Wayne Rooney is in line to make a sensational, one-off return to the England national team when the Three Lions take on United States of America at Wembley later this month.

Rooney moved to America earlier this year to play MLS football with DC United.

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.

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

Wayne Rooney is a "special player", says Jermain Defoe, with the Manchester United legend deserving of one last outing for England.

Paul Scholes reacts to Man United’s 2-1 win at Bournemouth
In-form Bournemouth, now sixth in the league, will look to secure a fourth victory in five league matches when they host United . As a team we didn't press or do any of the week we did in the week.

Defoe, though, believes that England's all-time leading goalscorer will benefit Gareth Southgate's squad by taking in a final appearance for his country, with his vast experience set to rub off on a young squad ready to embrace the presence of a modern day icon. "It's fitting the match will be against the U.S.".

Both men still have plenty of football at the highest level left in them, with Rooney about to rejoin the England fold for one final worldwide outing, and it could be that their paths cross again before either slips into retirement.

"To actually give him a game in what is a proper England global is completely wrong, in my opinion".

"If Rooney wants to raise money for his foundation then he would be better served booking Wembley, inviting an all-star XI and holding a charity match".

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