He recently played international for England, November 11, 2016 was against Scotland. Then he announced that the career of the national team had ended.
But on Thursday in ten days, Wayne Rooney (33) is making a comeback for England, against the United States. Not necessarily that is good enough, but because the English Football Association wants to respect him.
Ronnie – Now playing for d. United States – thus receiving the international number 120 compliance. The decision creates responses:
"I was shocked when I read it, and I still have a hard time understanding the decision," said the legends of the guard Peter Shilton.
"Two years have passed since Wayne recently played a national game, England has recovered to a new level and has just placed a brilliant World Cup, it says, according to Daley Mirror.
"It's not about how Wayne deserves to be respectable, but you can do it, no matter if he plays, you do not have to give only fights, and that can not be true at the expense of a younger player.
"I do not agree with the decision at all, it should be the greatest honor to play for your country, but the truth is that the American League MLS is not close to being at the same level as the Premier League." Wayne Rooney finished England. GATE (coach) continued.
That Ronnie is getting a fight as a gift he was sentenced to almost by a united specialist corps in England. The Football Association did not find an opportunity to honor Ronnie – before. The proceeds from the game must go to Wayne Rooney's charity.
"Rooney is the time of the top scorer for England and he has a great career for the national team, but playing for England has to be an honor, it can not be that England will respect you," said Alan Shearer, an expert on the BBC and Sun.
With his 119 international, Rooney is only six games from the man who has the record, Peter Shilton (125 games). David Beckham in third place (115 games). But no one beats Ronnie on scoring statistics. He has 53 goals for England. Then Bobby Charlton (49 goals) and Gary Linker (48 goals).
– A player has never won such honor before. The cynic will be wondering if FA is doing it because you're struggling to sell tickets to a friendly game next Thursday, Shearer notes.
The commentator on the Daily Mail, Martin Samuel, writes:
Wayne Rooney's comeback to England is brand new. His resume should have 119 matches in one charity match.
Some people come to the fact that Ronnie is getting a fight, helping to devalue the selected English drafts. Playing a national game is something you'll earn, not something you need to get a gift from.
"Ronnie deserves to hear the gesture of supporters of England but the debate will take place if he deserves a place on the team, writes BBC soccer referee Phil McNulty.
According to BBC, Ronnie responds to his fight against the United States:
"I am humble and happy to play again in England, I would like to thank Gareth Southgate and FA to invite me back to support my charity work, playing in England is the greatest honor in my career." The beginning of my 120th and final game will be a special moment for me.
England meet Croatia in the League of Nations after three days. It would be without Ronnie.
