Harry Kane reacts to Wayne Rooney taking back England captaincy

"I think all the players respect Wayne's contribution and that he deserves the best possible send-off".

The FA and Gareth Southgate have chosen to honour Rooney - the country's leading goalscorer - with a cameo appearance at Wembley in the upcoming global friendly.

Harry Kane said: "Yes of course".

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has received his first senior worldwide call-up for England's games against the United States and Croatia.

It was also confirmed that the 33-year-old would not wear his usual number 10 shirt and would not captain the side.

"I've not spoken to Gareth [Southgate] too much about how he's going to do it or how long he's going to play but it will be great to see him again and I'm sure he'll be looking forward to seeing a few of the boys".

"Wayne Rooney finished with England, Gareth Southgate moved on and I don't agree with this at all".

"You can come on with two minutes to go because you need a change - I've played when we've changed the whole team at half-time".

Former captain Rooney last figured for England in a 3-0 victory win over Scotland in November 2016.

"But I can understand why some people might think it makes the game a bit of a circus - and England have got an important game (a crucial Nations League decider against Croatia) three days later".

The DC United forward, who has scored 53 global goals and made his last worldwide appearance in a 3-0 victory over Scotland in November 2016, will be used as a second-half substitute.

"He deserves it. He was a great captain for us".

A man who was heavily linked with the England managerial post at various stages throughout his coaching career told the Daily Star: "I like Wayne, I get on well with him and his record speaks for itself".

"Still a long way to go, but hopefully I can stay fit and healthy, score a few more goals and then see in a few years how close I am", he said.
