" I have no words "

22:25: England striker Callum Wil Son for Sky Sports: " I have no words, it has not dropped at the moment was an opportunity for me and I just wanted to grab it with both hands Wayne Rooney is a legend for England when he got my jersey from him before the game was a great honor and I was allowed to share the pitch with him.

ENGLAND 3 – 0 USA

FT: No fairy tale ends for Wayne Rooney, whose England career ends with a 53-goal record after failing to score in his 120th game.

92: Here's Rooney … argh! Wayne turns and spins to make room for the shot, pushing the trigger, but Guzan makes a relatively comfortable save.

Rooney smiles, as if to say: "Oh, come on, Brad!"

90: Gary Neville just awarded the MOTM Prize to Trent Alexander-Arnold He was tonight Wayne Rooney is still looking for that priceless destination, but I do not think the fairy-tale ending will happen.

Three minutes extra time.

88: Did everyone else receive the FA statement that we play until Rooney scores? Only me then …

85: Wood breaks down the channel, but his cross is too close to McCarthy, who conveniently pulls the ball out of the sky and hits him on the field.

83: Would you believe it? Croatia won 3-2 against Spain in stoppage time. This means that everything is online in the Wembley national tournament on Sunday.

80: It was indeed the last touch of Callum Wilson. Marcus Rashford replaces him for the last ten minutes.

Callum Wilson is the first Bournemouth player to score for England and the first player to score since his debut in the three-lion round since Marcus Rashford in May 2016.

ENGLAND 3-0 USA | WILSON

77: Callum Wilson scores on his England debut!

It was a frustrating night for the Bournemouth striker, and he has proved that the tenacity pays to move away from him, Fabian Delph's cross from the left sideline.

Only in time, because I think he's leaving shortly.

76: Finally some free-flowing game! Rooney and Loftus-Cheek unite to free Trent on the right. His crossed cross is almost distracted by the diving Wilson, who could not quite reach it.

73: The tension, if England advances, is unbearable! Everyone is looking for Wayne Rooney's run and trying to find him in hell or in the high water. Sancho sees the legend of England on the edge of the area, but Brad Guzan can easily catch up with him.

Brad Guzan now has the task to play the pantomime villain. "Oh, let him score," rings the office.

70: Further changes to break the rhythm. Ruben Loftus-Cheek replaces Harry Winks, Acosta replaces Trapp for the US.

The paper planes have started … this half was terrible.

68: England has completely lost her focus and it is the visitors who are now attacking everyone.

Pulisic pumps the ball into the box and the unmarked Wood goes down. Happy escape really.

65: The US sends teenager Tyler Adams into midfield for Julian Green. You'll be pleased to hear that Wayne Rooney touched the ball, but he has fulfilled his defensive duties.

63: England does not really know where Wayne Rooney should play. Does not that sound familiar … I think he plays behind Callum Wilson with Fabian Delph as left-back.

60: An almost perfect start for Wayne Rooney, who is near Sancho I could not find him.

58: Here comes Wazza !! Wayne Rooney receives huge ovations from the Wembley crowd. He replaces Dele Alli for the last 32 minutes.

With 53 goals and 119 international appearances, Rooney has played more times for the Three Lions than anyone else and has the most caps for a field player.

Alli, Chilwell and Lingard out, Dier, Henderson and Rooney.

53: Will Gareth Southgate puts Wayne Rooney in the 53rd minute on the number of goals he scored? No, none of that feeling tonight. [19659002] 51: Christian Pulisic meanders through the English midfield However, his shot is easy to block, and Wood then attempts a snapshot that misses the target.

The US has shown slightly more since the restart.

48: Jesse Lingard benefits almost from a dreadful US defense: Trents Loft Pass heads right through the penalty area before the Manchester United man rushes out of an uncomfortable angle.

ENGLAND 2-0 USA

45: 45: No sign from Wayne Rooney I'm scared. But there are signs of Southampton-based Alex McCarthy replacing Jordan Pickford in goal.

Kyle: Brilliant Jesse Lingard's strike and goal were almost identical to his strike against Panama at the World Cup.

Jamie: Lose / lose this for Wazza – if they win in the second half If we make her humble then it is "that's why he looks so good there" …

Paul: I'm not sure why I am England Understand to Prepare for a Major Match on Sunday with the Best Players

ENGLAND 2-0 USA

HT: Dominant man from England: Gareth Southgate's team showed a good performance for the Wembley fans – some concentration losses – but overall comfortable.

Time for Wayne Rooney

43: Callum Wilson will be a bit disappointed that he is not on the score, he has seen some good chances, but he still has plenty of room for the center-back and room for the tedious Trio created behind him. [194559002] 41: Wilson gets a pass from Chilwell, turns Miazga, but his effort is tarnished and Guzan falls off it – not literally, though I always remember Brad being out wearing a baseball cap for some reason.

38: That's the problem of the exhibition football! Green makes some sloppy pieces by Fabian Delph and tests Pickford at a great distance. Nothing the Everton goalkeeper could not handle.

35: Well, this looks like football from England is now in midfield with some moves and tricks.

33: It's comfortable for England. The crew of Gareth Southgate compose themselves and slow down somewhat after these two fast goals.

ENGLAND 2-0 USA

30: 30: Two goals to England take advantage of two quick chances. We push on ", is the message of US Twitter. I had to love the optimism.

29: It was only 104 seconds between goals from Jesse Lingard and Trent Alexander-Arnold for England.

ENGLAND 2-0 USA | ALEXANDER-ARNOLD

27: London buses come to mind …

The US has begun to insulate itself as an insatiable England for another 90 seconds to decide after the restart.

The impressive Sancho collects Wilson's blocked attempt and lays the ball off the overlapping Trent Alexander-Arnold, who coolly shoots into the bottom corner.

ENGLAND 1-0 USA | LINGARD

25: Jesse Lingard loves to score in Wembley. That's just a fact.

The playmaker of Manchester United, who has repeatedly played in the National Stadium, has another for his burgeoning highlights reel.

He collects a pass from Dele Alli before you ruffle a luscious blow in the upper right corner. Similar to the World Cup goal he scored.

24: Far too easy for visitors to open England wide. A simple double pass and a random distraction left Michael Keane and Lewis Dunk stranded. Pulisic races are clear, Pulisic races are clear, but Jordan Pickford helps.

23: Some very nice approaches from England. Lingard, Sancho and Alli combine well, but the final killer pass is still missing. A little more wrong needed.

20: Ah, be more greedy! Sancho and Chilwell walk around the US defense before the Borussia Dortmund star falls into the box. He SHOULD try to curl the ball around Guzan, but he places it in a clogged area. Clarified.

17: It is still scoreless after half an hour of the League of Nations between Spain and Croatia. If it stays the same, England will consider the group and win if we win against Croatia on Sunday.

Seconds later, Pulisic's cross crosses a corner of Keane – and the frame is bad.

11: Well … that will be discussed until late in the evening. Callum Wilson faces Brad Guzan, who (somehow) flew off his line to collect a pass.

It looks like a stone wall at first sight, but referee Manzano ignores the pleas of England. The replays show that Wilson went down prematurely, but he would have been sacked.

3: There is no mess today, the Three Lions are going straight down their necks! Jesse Lingard and Ben Chilwell connect the left channel well, but the Leicester full-back cross flies through the penalty area and Fabian Delph pokes the way clear at Miazga.

Today, the Premier League has agreed to pay Scud amore the farewell gift in recognition of his "outstanding work".

US manager&#39;s position in a state

18:50: The United States missed out on their first World Cup finals appearance since 1986 after a shock defeat at the hands of Trinidad and Tobago last October.

Head coach Bruce Arena lost his job as a result, with the United States Soccer Federation acting swiftly following the disappointment.

David Sarachan, one of Arena&#39;s assistants, was appointed as interim coach and took charge of his first game a year ago.

While the 64-year-old saw his temporary role extended to the end of the year in June, he does remain a stop-gap for the USSF – who have come in for criticism after failing to find a long-term replacement.

As one door closes…

18:45: With England facing a crunch Nations League meeting with Croatia just three days on from this friendly fixture, Southgate has already hinted he will mix things up.

This may be Rooney&#39;s swansong but squad newcomer Callum Wilson could be handed his debut against the United States, while promising teenager Jadon Sancho is in line for his first senior start.

The likes of Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and Lewis Dunk of Brighton could also come in for their international bows as Southgate offers up opportunities to impress.

We’re about to find out the starting XI. Standby…

Twitter round-up

Barney: Genuine danger the political collapse of the United Kingdom might start to overshadow Wayne Rooney Day.

Harry: Good luck to the lads tonight. Looking forward to seeing Wayne Rooney get the reception and send off he deserves.

Gaz: Wayne Rooney getting the send off he deserves from England tonight! No fan can ever say he didn’t give 100 percent every game for his country! I’ll be shouting ROOOONEY constantly for the next 90mins straight!

As will I, Gaz. The office will not be too happy about it mind.

Wayne Rooney’s long goodbye

18:35: There’s only one place to start tonight’s coverage.

Wayne Rooney will bring down the curtain on his record-breaking international career with an honorary appearance which has been months in the making.

The FA had planned to give the former Three Lions captain a final farewell in the lead-up to the World Cup, but manager Gareth Southgate revealed last week that Rooney did not want to impede on preparations for the finals.

Instead he will make a substitute appearance in tonight’s match to mark his time with England and raise awareness of the Wayne Rooney Foundatio n.

It’s time for soccer!

18:30: That’s the first and last time I’ll be calling it soccer tonight – just wanted to make our American viewers feel welcome…

Anyway, England host the United States in the Wayne Rooney Foundation International at Wembley.

“Wayne Rooney? I thought he’d retired,” I hear you saying in a bemused fashion.

Well, It turns out that the country&#39;s all-time leading goalscorer will make one final appearance.

Rooney will wear the captain&#39;s armband and England number 10 shirt for the last time on a celebratory night!

Wayne Rooney farewell

Wayne Rooney will wear the captain&#39;s armband and England number 10 shirt for the last time on a celebratory night that Gareth Southgate believes befits one of the country&#39;s best ever players.

The Three Lions&#39; all-time top scorer and most-capped outfield player will come on for his 120th and final international appearance in tonight’s friendly against the United States at Wembley.

Rooney is set to be joined by his children during a pre-match guard of honour that will end with him collecting a memento from FA chairman Greg Clarke, before returning to the field in the second half as skipper.

The way his record-breaking international career is being recognised in the Wayne Rooney Foundation International has divided opinion, which Southgate believes highlights the lack of appreciation for the DC United forward.

"I think that has been clear this week – it has been disappointing to see him almost have to defend his inclusion in the game but that is where we are," the England boss said. "The more important thing is that within the England group we value what he has done, when you are in the dressing room and share the dressing room with someone you know.

"The hardest thing in football is to cross the white line and it is incredibly hard when you are the person who is expected to deliver."
