QUOTE OF DAY

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - SPORT -

■ “There have been on­go­ing dis­cus­sions since Wayne re­tired about pay­ing trib­ute to him and his Eng­land ca­reer. Those dis­cus­sions started 12 months ago. We have an op­por­tu­nity with the game at Wem­b­ley to pay trib­ute. I think all the play­ers re­spect Wayne’s con­tri­bu­tion and that he de­serves the best pos­si­ble send-off.” – Eng­land boss Gareth South­gate af­ter re­call­ing Wayne Rooney for games against Croa­tia and the US.
