But Rooney, who plays for DC United, is expected to earn his 120th cap in the friendly at Wembley on 15 November.

The match will be called ‘The Wayne Rooney Foundation international’.

The Wembley Arch will be lit up in the gold colours of Rooney’s charity.

The FA said it was an opportunity to “honour” Rooney’s “record-breaking international career”.
