Wayne Rooney: End of Manchester United career was 'embarrassing'

Callum Wilson

"Am I the only one seeing a Lingard goal here?" one fan swiftly wrote - and he was right.

"Well done @JesseLingard!" joked a fellow fan.

Focus on number 10 switched from Downing Street to Wembley on Thursday evening as the Three Lions' all-time top scorer and most capped outfield player brought the curtain down on his global career once and for all.

England, who face Croatia in a winner-takes-all shootout in the Nations League at Wembley on Sunday, rested a number of regular starters such as striker Harry Kane.

Debutant Wilson put the finishing touch on a 3-0 victory at Wembley with Jesse Lingard's stunner and Trent Alexander-Arnold's first England goal having put the hosts on course.

Wayne Rooney was the centre of attention.

"His chapter is ending now and mine is just starting".

"I just said, 'Congratulations, you've had a fantastic career.' We shared some words in the tunnel afterwards".

Warriors offering $100 monthly pass with no view of court
Only three National Basketball Association teams claim a longer consecutive sold-out streak than the Warriors. The streak began on December 18, 2012, in a game against the Hornets, who back then hailed from New Orleans.

"To make your debut and then score on it as well, I will share this with my family and friends".

But the evening belonged to Rooney, who came off the bench for his 120th and final cap, with Wilson saying the memories of making his debut, and scoring, alongside the Three Lions great will stay with him forever.

It meant Alexander-Arnold is the youngest Reds player to score for England since Michael Owen registered against Luxembourg in September 1999. It has been great the last few days.

He said: "It's my opinion but I think it's in very safe hands from what I've seen this week on the training pitch, how the players are getting coached is brilliant, and how the players are responding is excellent". I've had my time.

The DC United striker, who played his farewell match for England as the beat the U.S. at Wembley on Thursday, left Old Trafford over the summer after first-team opportunities started to dry up.

If taking Michael Owen's spot as the youngest Liverpool player for score for England wasn't enough, the 20-year old kept things tidy at the back - including helping to keep fellow up and comer and perennial Liverpool target Christian Pulisic quiet as the Borussia Dortmund attacker switched between the wings and ran between the lines on what was ultimately a frustrating night for the American worldwide.

Southgate said: "It would have been flawless for Wayne to score but we saw moments of real quality from him".
