Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes England can win the World Cup, after Roy Hodgson's side booked their place in Brazil last night. 

Szczesny, who was in goal for Poland as they were beaten 2-0 by the Three Lions, believes England are strong enough to compete for the top prize next summer. 

Hodgson's side came out of their group as unbeaten winners after six wins and four draws and the Gunners shot-stopper has highlighted England's attacking play as their main strength. 

The Polish international told reporters: "I thought offensively England were fantastic. They created a lot of chances, which was probably good for me as it meant I could make a couple of good saves, but I am obviously very disappointing about the result.

"England are also solid in defence now, so if they keep going like that and can improve a bit more, then surely they will have a chance at the World Cup."

Szczesny will not be going to the World Cup with Poland but hopes the country in where he plays his football do well as he continued by saying: "If they can go to Brazil with the same attitude which beat us, then they will be one of the favourites, and I think they believe they are. I hope they can do very well.

"They can go all the way. Obviously if I was there I would be hoping Poland could win it, but I will be hoping that England can now go all the way and win it.

"There are no realistic targets when you go to the World Cup, you just want to win and make your dream come true.

The keeper has also hailed the Polish fans after they were seen in numbers at Wembley last night. 

The Arsenal star finished by saying: "We knew the fans were going to be fantastic for us and they kept us going through some tough periods.

"We tried to give something back to them by getting a result, but hopefully they were able to enjoy the game."

Do you agree with the Arsenal goalkeeper? Can England win the World Cup in Brazil next year?
