Wayne Rooney is confident that England will qualify for the World Cup in Brazil next year despite two tricky qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland.

England go into their final Group H games needing two positive results to assure themselves of a spot at the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

The Three Lions were uninspiring in their 0-0 draw against Ukraine last month, but Rooney says they are ready to fire on home soil, starting Friday against Montenegro.

"We're going to do it. We're going to get to the World Cup," the Manchester United forward said.

"I'm confident, we're confident, but you always have to be sure you're not over-confident. These are going to be two tough games for us, but we're good enough to do it."

"They are going to be two tough games, though, because Montenegro and Poland are good sides and their best qualities are on the counter attack.

"We will have to try and break them down and make sure we don't get caught out at the back. I think we'll do it, but nobody should think it's going to be easy."

The Manchester United forward returned to action following a shin complaint in the 2-1 win over Sunderland over the weekend.

Having overcome that knock, and having missed England's last fixtures with a cut to his head, the Old Trafford ace declared himself fight and ready to go for the two games.

"I've got a little knock but I'll be fine for England," Rooney continued. "I can't wait to be honest. As soon as the Sunderland game had finished, I started to think about England."
