Wayne Rooney says farewell as England beat United States

However, Wilson did get his goal to cap a dream debut for the 26-year-old, who has battled through the lower leagues and two cruciate ligament injuries in both knees to make it to the worldwide stage.

The match was dubbed as Rooney's farewell fixture as the Manchester United legend walked into the pitch when he was given a guard of honour by both the teams.

The match against U.S., the country in which Rooney now plies his trade, gave England fans the opportunity to show their appreciation for their country's record goalscorer and most-capped male outfield player.

Wilson has scored 50 goals in 128 games for Bournemouth, establishing himself as one of the most lethal finishers in the Premier League in recent seasons.

As England's record-scorer bid farewell, Alexander-Arnold was joined by striker Callum Wilson in getting their first goals for England.

He even suggested Rooney could play in the UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia on Sunday.

The 33-year-old started the match on the bench but he came on early in the second half, winning his 120th cap in the process.

"It hasn't taken way form what Gareth and the players are trying to do", he said.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Wilson spoke about how, while at Coventry in 2012, he played three games on loan in the Conference for Tamworth, scoring a solitary goal.

By the time Rooney entered the game as former Manchester United teammate Jesse Lingard's replacement in the 58th minute, England had done enough for the victory. Unfortunately I couldn't get a goal but I'll remember it for a long time.

"It's a great group of young players who have got a really bright future".

"From our point of view, we are talking about respecting the shirt and those who have gone before and all of the players did that this week".

The Wembley faithful was willing Rooney to add to Wilson's goal, but Guzan denied him in stoppage time. "I needed to move on and go somewhere else". "There are no guarantees I will get on but I've still got probably 15-20 people from my family and friends coming to the game to watch, and it just shows for me what they want for me and what I want for myself".

The England captain did not get the chance to bridge the gap as Southgate prioritised keeping most of his key players fresh for Croatia's visit tomorrow. "It'll be great for the country and I'll be one of the fans supporting them".
