Wayne Rooney is aware of the fact that he hasn’t performed that well for England in big international competitions so far and he wants to improve that track record of his. He is quite determined to help the Three Lions achieve the glory in Brazil next year.

Rooney’s outings in the last couple of World Cups haven’t been impressive at all. He struggled in the previous edition of Euro Cup as well which was played last year, but, the form that he has shown in the World Cup qualifiers recently, it seems he is back to his peak and that’s definitely a great sign for England.

England made it to the World Cup finals with a win over Poland on Wednesday and Rooney played a major part in that win. He took England ahead in the game with a stunning goal in the 41st minute of the match and then, later on, Steven Gerrard added one more to make sure that the Three Lions would secure a comfortable win. England are fifth favourites to win the title according to the latest 2014 World Cup betting odds.

Talking to the reporters after the game against Poland, Rooney said, “I have been playing for England since the last 10 years and now, my target is to win as many titles as possible.”

When asked if he is determined to do well in the World Cup, Rooney said, “As far as determination is concerned, it has always been there. But, unfortunately, I haven’t won as many titles with England as I would have liked to. But, I am really looking to do well in the World Cup.”

Rooney is not a young player anymore. He will be 28 years of age next year when the World Cup finals kick off. The Manchester United star has seen many talented, young players emerging for England in the last 5 years and according to him, with so many talented guys around now, he doesn’t feel that much pressure which he once used to feel.
