One More Time for Rooney as England faces United States at Wembley

An English footballing hero and a newfound star in the United States, D.C. United striker Wayne Rooney returns to Wembley Stadium for his swan song.

His Three Lions will face the United States Men’s National Team on November 15, 2018 for “The Wayne Rooney Foundation International” friendly match.

Former England captain Rooney has scored an English record of 53 goals in 119 international caps, the second most in England’s football history.

After retiring from international duty in 2017, and away from European football in general, Rooney transferred to Washington-based D.C. United where, in just one season, he lifted the US club from the bottom fringes of the table to the MLS Playoffs, winning the hearts of American fans in the process.

Wembley Head-to-Head

While the match will be in honor of Rooney, the ninety-minute action will be also a good gauge for the form of players representing each of the two international sides.

The Three Lions, semifinalists of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, have two wins in the last five games. Beloved manager Gareth Southgate has called up some of the heroes in Russia last summer, headlined by current England captain and Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Everton custodian Jordan Pickford. Uncapped Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson and Brighton & Hove defender Lewis Dunk can get their first appearance in an English shirt at Wembley.

Meanwhile, the rebuilding USMNT are struggling with only one win in five games. The top managerial position still hangs in the air, with Dave Sarachan acting only as interim head coach.

The acting coach has complemented his local-based team with the European-based ones. Wolfsburg’s John Brooks, Schalke’s Wenston McKennie, Paris Saint-Germain’s Tim Weah, and Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic were called to represent the Stars and Spangles in London.

England will face the United States on November 15 for an international friendly in support of the Wayne Rooney Foundation. The Three Lions are expected to smash the USMNT, according to odds offered by online sportsbooks.

As of November 13, William Hill and bet365 both offer 1/4 for an English win, 10/1 for an American victory, and 9/2 for a draw. Meanwhile, Betway has England at 30/100, the US at 8/1, and a stalemate at 17/4.
