England manager Gareth Southgate said he was pleased with his team's display and with the send-off for Rooney.
On the back of his truly impressive form for Liverpool, there was no surprise when Reds youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold was named alongside club captain Jordan Henderson and the increasingly indispensable Joe Gomez in Gareth Southgate's England squad, but there was more than one eyebrow raised when the 20-year old fulfilled what he's since called a "childhood dream" by bagging his first senior goal for the Three Lions in an emphatic 3-0 win over the United States at Wembley.
Should England avenge their heartbreaking World Cup semi-final defeat by Croatia on Sunday at Wembley, Southgate's men can build on the progress made by surpassing expectations in Russian Federation this summer by qualifying for the semi-finals of the inaugural Nations League.

The DC United striker did come close to adding to his 53 goals when he forced Guzan into an excellent stop late into the game.
Wilson said: "Wayne is a legend for England, he has achieved so much throughout his career and to share the pitch with him was a great honour".
"It has been a brilliant year no matter what happens on Sunday". I believe I was good enough to get back in the team, but I never really got that opportunity. We will have to be better without the ball, in particular.
