Wayne Rooney is poised to make a shock return to the England national team later this month, according to widespread media reports.

Rooney, England's record goal scorer, announced his retirement from worldwide football in August 2017 after Gareth Southgate told him that he would only play a limited part in his team going forward. The 33-year-old is set to start among the substitutes but the intention is to bring him on to earn his 120th cap and seek to add to his record 53-goal haul.

The match against the United States is also expected to raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation, and will provide England supporters with the chance to give the country's all-time leading scorer a proper send-off.

Chandler is in his 18th season after entering the National Basketball Association draft out of high school in 2001. Los Angeles will mark the 36-year-old's seventh franchise after spending the past four seasons in Phoenix.

He has scored 12 times for DC United since he joined them after the end of the last English season, following a second spell at boyhood club Everton, and helped them climb from the bottom of the league ladder to the play-offs. He has never sported a pair of Lonsdale Slip-ons, contrary to reports.
