Wayne Rooney to make England comeback

The 33-year-old announced his international retirement over a year ago

The FA has renamed the game against the US "The Wayne Rooney Foundation International" and said there would be "fundraising initiatives around the game" to support his charity.

The two icons of the game now ply their trades at very different levels despite being of the same age.

And the 33-year-old has suggested they could play together for the same team in the future.

While together at United the duo formed a dynamic partnership that often tore opposition defences to shreds with it's raw pace and power.

"For me the power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength", Ronaldo told Goalhanger films. He was the kid of England. I always call him between me and my mates the pit bull. I remember when he lost the ball he was so powerful, a strong guy, he shoots unbelievable.

I'm not sure today, maybe tomorrow he is going to join us in training.' The Chelsea official website quotes us as saying. It is because we believe in the end of the day is that Mason and Tomori, they grew up as players.

Ronaldo added: "He scored many goals, what can I say?"

"With players like that, you have to be a sponge, you have to think "I am going to get a little bit from that". "What he has done throughout his career, for club and country, he has been a special player since day one when he burst onto the scene at Everton".

The duo have also clashed at the worldwide level during the 2006 World Cup when Ronaldo engineered Rooney's sending off following his stamp on Ricardo Carvalho.

Money raised from the match would go towards various children's charities as well as the Wayne Rooney Foundation - the Wembley Arch will even be illuminated in the foundation's gold colours. "It's fitting that the match will be against the U.S. and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game".

Rooney has scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for DC United during his short spell in MLS, while Ronaldo has seven goals in 13 outings for Juve. "Acknowledging the Three Lions legacy has been a major part of our journey with this current group of young players and Wayne Rooney is a hugely significant part of that history".
