Wayne Rooney will captain England in the World Cup qualifier against Scotland at Wembley on Friday, says interim manager Gareth Southgate, the BBC reported.

The 31-year-old forward and skipper was dropped for the previous game, a 0-0 draw in Slovenia last month.

“He’s in a better place than for the last get-together in terms of sharpness and confidence,” said Southgate, according to the BBC.

“He’s an experienced player for a game like this and there is no hesitation to be playing him.”
