Vidic relishes World Cup showdown with Man United pal Rooney

Nemanja Vidic hopes he comes up against England in South Africa this summer so that he can show Manchester United pal Wayne Rooney exactly who Serbia are. The in-form striker, who has celebrated 32 goals already this season, joked with the central defender, 'Serbia? Who plays for them?' when Vidic raised the prospect of a meeting at the Finals. And Vidic, whose return to action last month has coincided with a transformation in United's fortunes, admits he would relish the prospect to face who he considers the best in the business in Rooney, with a potential last 16 clash on the cards. Who are ya? Nemanja Vidic wants to exact revenge on Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney over his World Cup taunts about facing Serbia 'Wayne is definitely the best striker in the world,' said Vidic. 'And after sharing the same dressing-room, it would be fun to play against him. 'I mentioned to him that if we got through we have a chance to meet England. I said it would be an interesting game. He said "Serbia? Who plays for them?". He was joking. 'One of us would have to lose and he's a great player, who would be hardto keep quiet. But that's the challenge. That's why you play football. Head-to-head: Vidic admits he would relish the opportunity to play against Rooney 'He knows we're doing well and he knows we're not an easy team, even though England are a big one.'   Vidic conceded Rooney would be a difficult proposition, saying no matter how many lumps he could kick out of him, the forward would probably still be standing! He added: 'I don't kick so many players. I would kick him more in training. Wayne is strong and he has pace. For a defender, players like that are always difficult.'  Ji-sung Park: Manchester United didn't sign me just to sell shirts in AsiaMan United fans target Oliver Gill after father David's pro-Glazer stanceNani was offered to Middlesbrough for £3.5m before £17m Man United switchMANCHESTER UNITED FC
