Wayne Rooney is expected to make a late substitute appearance in the England friendly named in honour of his charity.

The decision to award Rooney a 120th cap in the November 15 international against the United States, in appreciation of his commitment to the Three Lions, has split opinion.

The former England captain has not represented his country for almost two years but the game at Wembley has been branded the Wayne Rooney Foundation International, with the Football Association helping to promote his charity.

It is believed that Rooney, 33, is not due to start the game, nor will he be given his usual number 10 shirt for the occasion - with his appearance on the bench also meaning it is unlikely he will wear the captain's armband on his return.

The FA announced on Tuesday that none of the gate receipts will be donated to Rooney's charity but that supporters will be given the option to donate when they purchase tickets for next Thursday's game.

There will also be silent auctions in the hospitality areas and a text-to-donate number will be advertised throughout the 90 minutes, with the FA also promoting awareness of the causes supported by Rooney's foundation.
