Wayne Rooney explains heartbreaking story behind his goal celebration

The Manchester United legend will win his 120th cap for the Three Lions against the United States on Thursday.

Wayne Rooney will say goodbye to international football when he makes his 120th and final cap for England against the United States on Thursday.

The 33-year-old Manchester United  legend, currently plying his trade with MLS side DC United, will wear three lions on his shirt for one last time at Wembley, where he will bow out after 15 years.

Ahead of the friendly Rooney took to the pitch with his international team-mates and looked relaxed as he made a phone call.

He was then seen laughing and joking with the younger players who are no doubt benefiting from having an experienced figure in the changing room.

The former Everton striker also took to Twitter where he posted the following message: “When I celebrate it’s in memory of my wife’s little sister Rosie who sadly passed away in 2013 aged 14.

“She visited both Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Claire House and the care and support the family received was unbelievable. Please donate if you can and help us to help more families. Thank you.”

Thursday’s international friendly won’t just be a milestone game for Rooney as many eyes will also be on Dortmund midfielder Jadon Sancho, who is set to make his full debut.
