Barcelona star Alexis full of praise for Man Utd ace Rooney

Barcelona's Chile star Alexis Sanchez admits he's a big fan of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Chile will meet England later this week.

"I don't think England can win the World Cup," Sanchez told the Daily Express. "They have some very good players but are probably not at the level where they can beat the best.

"I do like Wayne Rooney. Of course, technically he is a very good player, but I also like his determination and resilience. I respect the way that he approaches the games."
