Wayne Rooney and James Milner of England looked fit in a training session at St Georges Park on August 12, 2013 in Burton-upon-Trent, England (see photo above).
England National Team manager, Roy Hodson, says Rooney will be fit for the friendly at Wembley Stadium after he impressed in training today.
Rooney's recent shoulder injury seems healed and Rooney trained away from the first team at Man United at his own request, after reportedly telling manager David Moyes that he wants to leave United.
Moyes stated again that Rooney would not be sold to Chelsea, who have had two offers for him rejected to date.
Hodgson seems concerned about Rooney's status with Man United.
"It would be very nice if his future is clarified both for him and his club, and of course my hope and desire is that will happen," he said.
"In my year and a bit as national team manager I've been faced with the situation where players are not necessarily always playing in their team, but because they have the qualities we're looking for, they still manage to be selected.
"I'm hoping that will be the case with Wayne, but I'm not prepared to make any statements that if he's not playing for a club side he can't be considered for England."
