I TOTALLY agree with Scott Wilson in his article “Is it right to give Wayne Rooney an international send-off?’ (Echo, Nov 6). The whole thing is a farce.

Rooney retired from international football 15 months ago and to bring him back to play in a friendly and gain another cap makes a mockery of the England set up. He has been a great player but along with other England greats his time was up and to let him play again is totally wrong.
