When giving a scorer of England, Wayne Rooney, the appearance of a goodbye is the effort of Gareth Southgate to celebrate the contribution of the country's football stars better.
33-year-old Rooney will appear for the 120th appearance of England during a friendly next week against the US at the Wembley Stadium, despite the retirement of an international duty in August 2017.
"Those discussions started 12 months ago. We have the opportunity with the game at Wembley to pay tribute," said Southgate.
"We've brought back players back to talk and current shirts. I believe that all the players respect Wayne's contribution and deserve the best possible delivery. # 39; & # 39;

Rooney was one of 28 players selected on Thursday (NZT Friday) by Southgate, but the former captain will not play on November 18 against the Uefa Croatia League Cup final in England.
"I can still look to the future with the squad we have chosen," said Southgate.
After a home-based career in Manchester United and Everton, Rooney is now Major League Soccer with DC United.
Southgate was inspired to pay a great tribute to the attacker after seeing how Germany honored Lukas Podolski around the 2017 game against England.
"Everyone had hit the fact that it was a good way to know someone who has a great career in the country," said Southgate. "We have not been great over that over the years."
As Rooney tried to farewell to England, Callum Wilson was first attacked for Bournemouth after scoring six goals of this season in the English Premier League.
Midfielders Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard return after being banned from the League Games for the month against Spain and Croatia by injury, with Mason Mount and James Maddison falling.
Drawing with Croatia follows a victory over Spain leaving England to wait for the outcome of the meeting between their Four Four Group competitors before Southgate knows what is at stake in his final League of Nations.
A decline to League B or a sequel to the final of the first competition will continue to be the possibilities for England, which lost to Croatia in its first World Cup final in 28 years in July.
