The controversial return to England of Wayne Rooney went down to the farce
A 40-page FA communications document is at the center of the confusion surrounding Rooney
Comes as Spain presented plans for retired midfielder David Silva, from Manchester City, to receive a farewell farewell. He will take the start before his encounter with Bosnia in Las Palmas on Sunday at week, in his suit, before leaving the field.
There are many who feel that it would be a good point for Rooney too, and not the rage that surrounds him.
In his place, Rooney, who will win his 120th maximum against EE. U., He was sunk in controversy. And the FA officials were in panicky since the news leaked out of their intention to give the English golfer a farewell game more than a year after he retired from international football.
On Tuesday they moved quickly to reject the reports that Rooney could be given the 10th shirt he used during his tenure as captain of England, and there was also a claim that the 33-year-old, now playing for DC United at the MLS, The game is expected to start and Captain Gareth Southgate.

Undoubtedly, there seemed to be some confusion around it, perhaps because of the interpretation of the communications document on the return of England to a game of England.
They seemed to be under the clear impression that he would start and receive the bracelet with FA's own communication about social networks, essentially many photos of Rooney in his T-shirt No 10 or shirt No 10, reinforcing the view that he would receive a full treatment of red carpet

Even within the FA, there seems to be a suggestion that Southgate can give his shirt No. 10 that is being used more frequently by the star of the win against Spain in Seville last month, Raheem Sterling.
But July insiders insisted that T-shirt No. 10, the captaincy and the idea of getting started had not reached a serious point of discussion, being fired at the time it was suggested (presumably by Rooney camp).
Mail sports He realizes that FA has become aware that carrying No. 10 out of Sterling could cause a problem when some of the Southgate players are somewhat confused with the decision to select Rooney when he was essentially axed by England manager two years ago.
It was only in August, in the end, that Southgate said that it became too easy to enter the squad, with the clear message that he intended to make it more difficult. Having said that, Kyle Walker did not object when asked Tuesday.
"It's good," he said. "Wayne has been there since age 20. He helped me in my career in England and I think it's the dismissal that deserves what he has done for English football and England."

On Tuesday night, the whole situation had fallen into farce, leaving Southgate with the task of providing some clarity when announcing his squad at Wembley on Wednesday.
One of the questions he will face is that he persuaded him to accept an idea that seems originally caused by Rooney's agent, Paul Stretford, given the divisive aspect that was made.
On Tuesday, FA officers were still forced to clarify why Rooney's foundation, which was chosen as the official charity for the game, does not receive £ 3 million from a non-profit organization as the FA expects to make in the sales of tickets.
A FA spokeswoman said: "FA is a non-profit organization that pounds millions of pounds into the base game on an annual basis. Revenues from England v. USA will return to the English game.
"However, to honor Wayne Rooney and his recording career in England, we will also help raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation through a series of fundraising initiatives throughout the game."
These initiatives include shirts to be signed by the squad and given to the foundation, an opportunity for free fans to buy a game ticket, free collections around the stadium, gift cards and silent auctions in hospitality areas, a text for To donate the facility via BT and a gala dinner at Wembley in 2019.
