Wayne Rooney England Fifa 2014

Even when England’s Wayne Rooney has failed to score in eight appearances at the World Cup finals, Pele still expects Rooney to play a big role, helping England to qualify from Group D, which includes Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica.

“Of course today it is very, very even; the majority of the players play in Europe, like Brazil. Brazil have 11 players playing in Europe. England have a difficult group but I think they could pass. Wayne Rooney has not scored [in a World Cup final stage] but he was fantastic for the team. He was always the player who fought more for the team – I would like him in my team, you know!”
