The mid-Novem­ber in­ter­na­tional friendly be­tween Eng­land and

USA at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium was used to help raise money for the Rooney Foun­da­tion. The English Football As­so­ci­a­tion had planned to have var­i­ous bucket col­lec­tion points both in­side and out­side Wem­b­ley so that sup­port­ers could do­nate. How­ever, none of the 68,000 in at­ten­dance were able to do­nate be­cause there wasn’t a sin­gle per­son col­lect­ing money, de­spite the FA hav­ing a li­cense to col­lect char­i­ta­ble donations.

The FA said they were un­able to set up the col­lec­tions ar­eas and find vol­un­teers due to a lack of time. Wayne Rooney’s char­ity has missed out on thou­sands of dol­lars be­cause of this.
