Ferdinand eyes Spain scalp

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is confident he can help England beat Euro 2008 winners Spain in a friendly international in Seville on Wednesday. Fabio Capello's side have a 100 per cent record after four games of their World Cup qualifying campaign and won 2-1 in Germany less than three months ago in their last friendly. Ferdinand, who has been part of a United defence that has not conceded a goal in 12 Premier League games, said: "We've been on good form and we want to keep the performance levels high. "After winning in Germany we believe we can beat any team on the planet. "It will be a massive test for us, especially after what Spain did in the European Championship, and with the players they've got they are the best team in Europe if not the world. "We've played France and Germany in our last few games, so to add Spain to that list will definitely be good for us. "We've started well but now we need to continue to build on the good results we've had."
