Wayne Rooney is an iconic player says Ryan Giggs

As if Wayne Rooney's imminent one-night-only return to the England squad wasn't pointless enough to begin with, The FA have confirmed that the upcoming friendly against the U.S. at Wembley will not be a charitable affair after all.

Rooney's England return - farce or fitting tribute?

"I think it's great", Kane said after scoring twice for Tottenham Hotspur against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley on Tuesday to keep the London club's Champions League hopes alive. "This game is the first opportunity we've had at Wembley to do that".

"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".

Ariana Grande drops song about her exes
It was posted in good fun, something Ariana herself got a good laugh out of when she saw it later in the day. The singer revealed on Twitter that both Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez heard the single before she released it.

"We're a odd country in that we bemoan the fact that we haven't achieved as much as we'd like, and then we have a player who should be held in the highest regard and we're spending a lot of time justifying giving him that tribute".

"But also I have talked a lot to the players about the importance of the shirt, the history of the shirt, honouring the former players, and I think all the players would respect that Wayne's contribution deserves the best possible send-off". Over a period I've tried to approach things differently, and some of those decisions are a bit risky; some have paid off, some won't.

Southgate confirmed that Rooney will not wear the No. 10 shirt against the US, but would not be drawn on whether England's all-time leading goalscorer will wear the captain's armband when he plays.

"The value of caps is very hard to be precise on".

Man City 'ignored warnings' over controversial sponsorship deal
Since 2008, City have won three Premier Leagues , an FA Cup and three League Cups, and have spent more than £1.4bn on players. Der Spiegel claims one of City's solutions to circumvent the rules was to launch Project Longbow.

"If we're also talking about helping young players develop in the worldwide set-up, then surely celebrating Wayne's career in this way is an example to the next generation of England stars". I know what it meant to Sir Bobby Charlton when he came to St George's and we named the pitch after him a few months ago.

"We have brought former players back to speak and present shirts".

"Would I give him armband?"
