The Three Lions host the USA at Wembley in an international friendly on November 16 and it’s been confirmed Rooney will be recalled for one final time, giving the nation a chance to bid farewell to its leading goalscorer.

Shilton, who holds the record for England caps with 125 believes by awarding one to Rooney, after a two year absence, cheapens the value of earning the right to play for your country, and could hamper the progress of other young players, like James Maddison, who are yet to earn a first full cap especially with a key Nations League game against Croatia to come just days later.

“I was shocked when I read it and I’m still struggling to understand the decision,” said the 69 year old.

“It’s been two years since Wayne last played, England are on a new threshold and have just had a great World Cup but are going backwards with this.
