"I miss him. The future, nobody knows, maybe we'll play one day together again".

And Ronaldo was asked about Rooney ahead of his showdown with Manchester United this week.

Wayne Rooney will make his first global appearance for two years after he was named in England's squad to face United States at Wembley.

A man with 57 caps to his name told Sky Sports on the decision to bring Rooney out of global retirement for a game which will help to generate funds for his charitable foundation: "What a guy and what a player".

He is now set to earn his 120th cap for the Three Lions, moving him just five appearances behind Peter Shilton, whose 125 appearances is an England record.

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.

Having made his worldwide debut in 2003 as England's youngest ever player, Rooney surpassed Bobby Charlton as his country's leading scorer in 2015.

"But England play Croatia in the Nations League three days after this United States of America match, so turning it into a testimonial means Gareth's players will not be preparing properly for the important game which follows it", Shearer added.

He has featured in three World Cups (2006, 2010, 2014) and three European Championships (2004, 2012, 2016) for the Three Lions, and captained the squad at Euro 2016.

The match will be called The Wayne Rooney Foundation International in support of the striker's charity aiding disadvantaged children, with England manager Gareth Southgate naming the 33-year-old in his squad. Yet the move still risks accusations of the FA devaluing the fixture, which comes three days before England's potentially decisive Nations League tie with Croatia at the same venue.
