Wayne Rooney has been brought out of international retirement for one more England outing, with Callum Wilson, Jadon Sancho and Michael Keane joining him in Gareth Southgate’s latest squad.

The Football Association had already revealed that the Three Lions’ all-time leading goalscorer would be involved in a friendly clash with the United States on November 15.

That fixture will see funds raised for Rooney’s charitable foundation, as he collects his 120th cap and seeks to add to a record-breaking haul of 53 efforts for his country.

The 33-year-old, who is now on the books of MLS side D.C. United, will only figure against the USA at Wembley.

He will not be involved in England’s final UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia three days later.

One man who will be hoping to figure in both games, and one at the opposite end of his international career, is Bournemouth striker Wilson.

Having proved himself to be a consistent performer in the Premier League, despite enduring injury struggles, the 26-year-old has been selected by Southgate for the first time – having previously figured for the current boss of the senior side at U21 level.

Elsewhere, Everton defender Keane is brought back into the England fold for the first time since October 2017.

Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard, Tottenham's Dele Alli, Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Manchester City’s Fabian Delph also return after missing out on the last squad.

Borussia Dortmund starlet Sancho is included once more, with his fine domestic form having been maintained since making his international bow in a goalless draw with Croatia.

Fellow youngster Mason Mount, who is on loan at Derby from Chelsea, is among those to drop out with a foot problem, with Leicester duo Harry Maguire and James Maddison also missing out through injury.

England squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Marcus Bettinelli, Jack Butland, Alex McCarthy, Jordan Pickford

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Chilwell, Lewis Dunk, Joe Gomez, Michael Keane, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker

Midfielders: Ross Barkley, Dele Alli, Fabian Delph, Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Harry Winks

Forwards: Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Wayne Rooney*, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling, Danny Welbeck, Callum Wilson. (* - USA match only)
