England can win Euros: Rooney

07 June 2012 09:46

Wayne Rooney insists England can mount a serious challenge at the European Championship despite the mood of pessimism surrounding Roy Hodgson's injury-hit squad.

"We are good enough to get in semi-finals and finals. That is the aim," the sophisticeted striker told English TV. "When you look at our squad, I don't see why we can't win it.

"There have been a lot of changes but I will expect big things.

Injuries to key players and a suspension which rules Rooney out of England's opening two games have left many observers thinking Hodgson's men will do well merely to advance from Group D.
