Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney has revealed he is looking forward to England's friendly match against Germany.

The Manchester United star, who was one of five players to play the full 90 minutes against Chile on Friday, is expected to start against Germany on Tuesday.

Rooney has called on his teammates to raise their game when they take on Germany in order for Roy Hodgson's side to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat against Chile on Friday night.

The 28-year-old said earlier in the week that it is always 'nice to beat the Germans' and that it was important for England to test themselves against the big teams before next year's World Cup in Brazil.

Rooney, speaking to his official Facebook page, said on England's encounter with Germany:

"Really looking forward to the game against Germany on Tuesday as they are always an entertaining and competitive match.

"It should be a good test for us and hopefully we can put in a better performance than against Chile."

Rooney, who captained the Three Lions for the final 19 minutes of their match against Chile, will win his 88th England cap if he features against Germany.
