Wayne Rooney tips Spain to win Confederations Cup

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has tipped Spain to lift the Confederations Cup.

The England international made his prediction ahead of the semi-finals, with Brazil taking on Uruguay today (Wednesday) and La Roja facing Italy tomorrow (Thursday).

And, if the results go as Rooney expects, then Spain will be adding to their ever-growing trophy collection on Sunday night with a win over the hosts.

“Excited for the semi-finals of the FIFA Confederations Cup. I'm predicting a Brazil V Spain final with Spain winning the tournament,” he wrote on his official Facebook page.

Brazil secured their passage to the last four of the competition after victories against Japan, Mexico and Italy. And, despite his recent goal against Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side, Rooney thinks the samba stars will make it to the final with victory over Óscar Tabárez’s side.

Uruguay finished second in Group B after losing their opener against Spain, but wins over Tahiti and Nigeria secured their place in the semis.

Spain, meanwhile, scored 15 goals in their three group games, and it’s easy to see why Rooney fancies Vicente Del Bosque’s side to go all the way once again.
