Rooney rejects ex-Man Utd pal Neville's England playing claims

Rooney scored 12 goals in 21 games for DC United in the MLS

England's all-time top scorer, Rooney came on as a 58th- minute substitute with the team 2-0 up thanks to excellent first-half strikes from Jesse Lingard and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

He said: "I have no words, it hasn't sunk in at the moment".

Callum Wilson netted his a goal on his England debut to make it 3-0 in the 77th minute, and after the match Guzan said he and his defenders were determined to stop Rooney as the home side repeatedly force-fed him the ball in unsafe positions. His chapter has obviously ended now and mine is just starting.

"To make your debut and then score on it as well, I will share this with my family and friends. I thought "I can't keep doing this", as hard as it was to leave United".

Wayne Rooney's farewell England appearance on Thursday night saw the Three Lions ease to victory over the United States at Wembley.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Rooney said: "It went as I imagined it".

'It's a shame I couldn't get that goal - but if I did score it would have opened a whole new debate about whether it should count so maybe better I didn't!'

"My youngest son has never seen me play for England, so tonight was the first and the last". I've had my time.

If taking Michael Owen's spot as the youngest Liverpool player for score for England wasn't enough, the 20-year old kept things tidy at the back - including helping to keep fellow up and comer and perennial Liverpool target Christian Pulisic quiet as the Borussia Dortmund attacker switched between the wings and ran between the lines on what was ultimately a frustrating night for the American worldwide.

"I'm not a player who hasn't played for a year and come back, I've been playing at a high level".

Rooney was honoured before the game with a guard of honour and the presentation of a plaque bearing a golden Three Lions badge by current skipper Harry Kane.

"We didn't play with discipline in the end. We've had real shoots of progress and achieved some outstanding results", said Southgate. "We haven't had that discussion because Wayne gave a nice speech at the end and I didn't want to rain on his parade".
