Wayne Rooney is set to make one final appearance for England in eight days time.

The Manchester United legend will play a part in the friendly against the USA on November 15 at Wembley.

It's thought that Rooney will only make a five-minute cameo towards the end of the match and will not take the number 10 shirt.

The whole thing has caused a bit of a stir among the media and fans.

Germany did a similar thing with Lukas Podolski, but it's the first time England have done it.

Peter Shilton and Alan Shearer are both against the idea, but what about the thoughts of England's current captain Harry Kane?

Well, Tottenham's goal scoring machine is fully on board with the idea and will happily hand him the armband.

“Yes, of course [I will],” Kane said. “He deserves it. He was captain when I first got into the squad and he was a great captain. So, if he plays, of course he’ll be the captain.

“I think it’s great. It’s a really good thing that everyone should be a part of. Wayne is one of the greatest ever players to play for England, the greatest goalscorer to play for England, so why not give him the send-off he deserves?

“I’ve not spoken to Gareth [Southgate] too much about how he’s going to do it when we play, but it’ll be great to see him again and I’m sure he’s looking forward to seeing a few of the boys.

"It’s a great experience for the younger players in our team, so I think everyone should get right behind it and it’ll be a good send-off.”

Fair play, Harry.

Spain haven't exactly helped matters in the Rooney saga by announcing that they will pay tribute to David Silva in a different way.

According to Marca, Silva will take the kick-off when Spain host Bosnia in Barcelona, but will play no further part.
