KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Despite calling the match "The Wayne Rooney Foundation International", The Times report that The FA will not be passing on a single penny of the gate receipts (takings of around £3million are expected) to the player's eponymous organisation, nor do they plan to donate a fixed lump sum.

Dismissing suggestions Rooney would be handed his long-time number-10 shirt, Southgate regardless revealed he would have "no issue" if he again wore the captain's armband, and his belief that the national team's setup has too often overlooked great former players.

"I am still able to look to the future with the squad we've picked, but we've talked a lot about the history of the shirt".

The England manager said he had been surprised by the negative reaction to Rooney's inclusion but cited the example of Lukas Podolski, who was honoured in a similar fashion by Germany during last year's friendly against Southgate's side.

During today's squad announcement, Gareth Southgate said that England should show more appreciation for their past stars.

England play the United States on November 15 before hosting Croatia in the Nations League the following Sunday, with both games live on Sky Sports.

'Breaking Bad' two-hour movie reportedly in the works
It appears we'll get to find out as part of this Breaking Bad movie , but it'll be interesting to see exactly what this is. Production in the Duke City is scheduled to begin mid-November through early February, according to the Journal .

Rooney was one of 28 players selected Thursday (NZT Friday) by Southgate, but the former captain will not play on November 18 against Croatia in England's final Uefa Nations League game.

Rooney, a record goalscorer for both Manchester United and England, retired from global football in August 2017.

"The players would respect Wayne's contribution deserves the best possible send-off". He's our greatest goalscorer and so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

"I was quite happy for the tribute to be before the World Cup but Wayne did not want to detract from the team at that time, so now we have the opportunity to pay that tribute".

Although these plans are bound to come in for criticism, England defender Kyle Walker has defended them: "I think it is good".

Kane has scored 19 goals for his country in 34 appearances and could easily break Rooney's record. If I had been a player, and had given what those guys had given, I'd have walked away from there feeling my association have really recognised me in a fitting way.
