Former Newcastle striker Andy Cole believes Wayne Rooney's ability to finish the simplest of chances is what has made him so deadly this season. Cole has recently been coaching at Huddersfield under former Toon team-mate Lee Clark. Andy Cole: "The good thing with Wayne this season is that he has got lots of tap-ins or goals from eight or 10 yards and those make big things in a season. "His work rate has always been the same and he has always been a team player but to get into those areas and get more goals it has been absolutely superb. "He has really stepped up to the plate and with (Cristiano) Ronaldo leaving he has come out and blossomed. He is now showing his full potential. "In England I feel we sometimes believe that one player can win us the World Cup. "All teams have special players and England's is Wayne Rooney. However, the World Cup is not won by one player. "For us to win it every player on a given day is going to have to play to their maximum."
