Wayne Rooney is set to return to the England side tonight in a one-time performance against the US national team in support of the charity, Wayne Rooney's foundation.

The aim is to see what Wayne Rooney Foundation calls, what organizations support it, and how supporters can be involved.
What is the Wayne Rooney Foundation?
The Wayne Rooney Foundation is a charity pioneered by former British international players, designed to raise money to support and improve the lives of children and young people throughout the world.
The Foundation runs various events and raises important funds to support the work of key organizations dedicated to supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable children, such as The NSPCC, Claire House Children's Hospital, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, and the Foundation Manchester United.
What events has been generated by Wayne Rooney Foundation?
The first event the Wayne Rooney Foundation won was its testimony match in August 2016, which was held between Manchester United and Everton at Old Trafford. The fixture ended with a 0-0 draw, and was the first match to see Jose Mourinho take over Old Trafford for the first time.
The testimony resulted in £ 1.2 million, and all donations were donated to a children's charity supported by Wayne Rooney Foundation.
Rooney's legacy with the English team will be honored in the upcoming friendly match against the US National Team which will support the Foundation, although no direct result of ticket sales will be given to the charity.
The 33-year-old is expected to come off the bench for the last half of the match to win his final match in England.
This match is a warm-up match ahead of the League of Nations match in England with Croatia at Wembley on Sunday.
Will the results of the UK vs USMNT match go to Wayne Rooney Foundation?
The FA has confirmed that there is no gate reception or ticket sales from England vs. USMNT friendly on Thursday will go towards Wayne Rooney's foundation directly, despite the match dubbed Wayne Rooney's International Foundation.
"The FA is a non-profit organization that invests millions of pounds back into grassroots games every year," the FA spokesman said.
"Results from England v USA will return to England. However, in honor of Wayne Rooney and his career breaking British records, we will also help raise money for Wayne Rooney Foundation through a number of fundraising initiatives around the match."
It is known that the FA will support the foundation through a series of events in fan collections, silent auctions in hospitality suites and promoting awareness of the causes of Rooney's charity raising funds around the date of the match.
Gathering money for charity is expected to have an approach similar to other charity friendships in the past, such as the Cancer Cancer International charity game against the Netherlands 2016.
Match fans will be given the option to donate to the Wayne Rooney Foundation when they buy tickets for the game, and there will be text-to-donate information in the stadium during a friendly match.
Fans can donate to charities soon here.
