“The great thing for Rooney is that he will probably be playing more regular football and so it’s as simple as that,” Southgate told the ‘London Evening Standard’.
“In the league we only have 70 English players, and so we certainly aren’t ruling anybody out.”
Southgate additionally recommended Rooney is in his thoughts regardless of his prohibition from the squad that played Germany and Lithuania in March and he is cheerful of his arrival.
“He’s absolutely [in my thinking],” the England boss said of the 31-year-old.
“I didn’t quite understand why we were talking about tributes when he has still got every chance of being in this team.
“I’m conscious that we’ll be talking about Wayne again and I’m hoping to be talking about the players who are here, but there’s no reason why he is finished with us.”
Rooney showed up in all rivalries 25 times with only 5 goals last season and with first-team chance hard to get the English striker chose to proceed onward.
The Manchester United all time top scorer’s position in the 2018 World Cup was in genuine uncertainty after players like Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy beat him in the last two seasons. Although, on the off chance if he can again demonstrate his capacity in the Blue shirt, Southgate will most likely consider bringing the nation’s top scorer to Russia for the next year’s World Cup.
