Rooney left out of England squad

Wayne Rooney is expected to miss out on Gareth Southgate's squad for England's upcoming matches with Scotland and France in a move which could signal the end of his global career, according to reports.

Southgate was careful to stress he was not bundling the decorated veteran into the wilderness, less than 24 hours after he made a cameo in United's Europa League victory over Ajax.

They will then depart for Paris before the game at Stade de France on Tuesday 13 June.

Following Newcastle United's sensational return to the Premier League as Championship title winners after just one season out of the English top-flight, the recruitment process at St. James' park will need to be an extensive one, if the Tyneside giants are to stave off the drop in the 2017-18 campaign.

Wayne Rooney's last worldwide appearance came in the home qualifier against Scotland last November and his latest omission will cast further doubt over whether he has an global future, one year away from the FIFAWorld Cup in Russian Federation. The player has needed injections to manage a hip injury over recent weeks and will have more treatment on the problem.

He has fallen down the pecking order at United under manager Jose Mourinho and today's squad announcement saw Southgate opt for the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford and Jermain Defoe instead of Rooney.

But the Obama administration also worked tirelessly to push forward the diplomatic process with the Palestinians, without result. It later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the worldwide community and claims the entire city as its capital.

The only newcomer to the 25-man group is Kieran Trippier, who is rewarded for breaking into Tottenham Hotspur's starting lineup with his first call-up to the senior squad.

Butland is seen by Southgate as a real contender to take the No1 goalkeeping place off current first choice Joe Hart ahead of next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

Sorry Burnley fans, but there's no Michael Keane this time around.

Strangely, Trippier is one of three right-backs in the squad, with his Spurs teammate Kyle Walker joined by Nathaniel Clyne.

Jordan Henderson and Jack Wilshere are among those now injured with Danny Rose and Luke Shaw also out, leaving Southgate with a headache at left-back with only Ryan Bertrand available. Gibbs' Arsenal colleague Theo Walcott is also absent for the second successive get together.

Ross Barkley, Daniel Sturridge and Michael Keane all miss out through injury.
