The two faced off after England's former captain came on as sub to earn his 120th global cap in a friendly against America at Wembley.

Rooney said: "It's my opinion that England are in very safe hands from what I've seen this week".

The match against United States of America, 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.

But Rooney stated: "It has been fun being around the players, it's been great seeing how they work and have improved".

"I'm sure in the next few years they will go close to bringing a trophy back".

Next up for the Three Lions is win or bust in Sunday's Nations League game with Croatia when victory will see England reach the semi-finals, but defeat relegate them.

However, the biggest cheer of the night was reserved for the introduction of England's greatest ever goalscorer just before the hour mark on his 120th worldwide appearance.

"The time Jose Mourinho left me out of the Manchester United team. there are moments when you do doubt yourself".

"It is something which created debate because it was the first time something like this happened, but it is the right thing to do for the players if you achieve and leave your mark on the England team".
