Wayne Rooney getting an England cap ‘makes the game a circus’ - Redknapp

England play the USA on Thursday, 15 November before hosting Croatia in the Nations League the following Sunday.

The worldwide friendly, set to take place on November 15, has been dubbed The Wayne Rooney Foundation global and some of the proceeds from the game will go towards the Manchester United great's charity.

The former Manchester United and Everton forward, who is now on the books of MLS side D.C. United, will take in a 120th appearance for his country on November 15 at Wembley Stadium.

But England's most-capped player, Peter Shilton, accused the FA of getting it "completely wrong" by offering Rooney - who retired from global football past year - what is effectively a testimonial appearance.

"I do not know too much about how he is going to do it or how long he is going to play", Kane told Sky Sports after Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.

"Wayne Rooney finished with England, Gareth Southgate moved on and I don't agree with this at all".

"He deserves it and was a great captain for us", he said.

One of them had been condemned and, with its windows boarded up, was well-secured and in theory unoccupied, officials said . Google Maps images taken in recent months showed the two collapsed buildings had large visible cracks in their facades.

"You can come on with two minutes to go because you need a change - I've played when we've changed the whole team at half-time".

"I am still able to look to the future with the squad we've picked, but we've talked a lot about the history of the shirt".

"That's not to say that Wayne does not deserve a tribute but give him a presentation, don't just give caps away, which is wrong and also denies a young player a chance as well".

"But I can understand why some people might think it makes the game a bit of a circus - and England have got an important game (a crucial Nations League decider against Croatia) three days later".

Rooney heads into the game having scored a record 53 goals for England, while Kane has 19 to his name.

"There's still a long way to go", said the 25-year-old. "We'll see in a few years how close I am".
