Good to see some players in form picked like Maddison.

I see Chalobah has been selected despite only just coming back from injury and not started a league game yet ..

Will Hughes might consider himself unlucky - Mout has done well but in the Championship.

Anyway probably start with Dier and Henderson away to Spain and Croatia..

Bizarre squad but suppose its only for shitty friendlies.

Surely Callum Wilson has got to be involved ahead of a 19yr old at Derby?

Best squad he's picked by a long way since he's been in charge. Got some young players in there who can keep the ball and create chances like Maddison and Mount what we have been crying out for and great to see Barkley back in aswel who offers something different to the rest of the other midfielders. Those days of picking the likes of Livermore are hopefully long gone.

It's clearly a positive move, why are people complaining? The only quibble would be that if Chalobah is worth a spot, then surely Hughes is more deserving. I might also have had Harvey Barnes in ahead of Mount, but both are very promising prospects.

Maybe not for the shit nations like Scotland but for England they're equally as shit as normal friendlies.
It's a league. I'm not saying it's a great system (at this moment in time, who can tell?) but it's a damn sight better than being served shit friendlies for 2 years.

I'd rather watch neither tbh but that's just me, just an annoying interruption to club football.

Tabloids reporting Rooney will making a one off appearance as captain against the USA in a couple of weeks as a "goodbye/thank you" to the fans.

Presumably not the fans he told to f-off at the World Cup in South Africa!

And the match will be played in honour of the Wayne Rooney foundation.

Load of bollocks. Does retiring not mean anything anymore? I'm really starting to despise modern football.

Don't think there's any harm in it to be honest. As long as he comes on for a sub appearance for the final 5/10 minutes of the match and isn't depriving anybody else of the majority of the match.

Was looking forward to see us trying out Sancho, Maddison and Mount ect in this game but oh well. I have always been a big fan of Rooney but I'm bit disappointed about this tbh.

Presumably if he's captaining the side, that means he starts?
