Spain striker David Villa believes England can win the World Cup and has likened them to his own side who struggled to live up to expectations until their victory in Euro 2008.
Spain head into the tournament as favourites while England have been less than impressive in their warm-up games.
But Villa told The Sun: "Yes, England are good enough to win the World Cup. Absolutely. They are a bit like Spain, aren't they? The fact is, they have always had good teams and they have found it difficult in the big competitions. But the day will come, won't it?"
He added: "I think they have a perfect generation to make it to the final - and they will surely be one of the teams to beat."
"They have a great manager and a team that can perfectly well reach the final.
"I like a lot of their players but this season I would pick out Wayne Rooney.
