Harry Winks says he wants to follow Wayne Rooney and will try to learn from him as much as possible.
Rooney is set to don the England jersey for one last time what could be his 120th cap for the Three Lions. The 33 year old is expected to be given few minutes on the pitch by Gareth Southgate to finish his international career on a high.
Rooney was called up to the England squad for the USA match which is also known as the Wayne Rooney Foundation International. The match will be played on Thursday at the Wembley Stadium and the former Manchester United forward will be the star attraction.
Winks who could feature in this match from the start said, “I think some of the boys have probably played with him for England before but for me it is a bit surreal.
“When I was young, growing up you think of Wayne Rooney as England and all of the stuff he has done for his club and country it is amazing.
“To be in and around him and to train with him, you see his quality and his professionalism and he is definitely someone to learn off.
“When you are in and around someone like Wayne Rooney you have to take as much experience from him as possible.
“He has won everything, done everything and he is a top, top player – when you think of England you think of Wayne Rooney.
“To even have the opportunity to be in the camp with him and share the amazing game he has got coming up is fantastic and I am really looking forward to it.”
