Capello has backed those hailing Rooney as one of the best in the world and explained his part in encouraging the United star to be more selfish.
Capello added: "I hope he will be the same in June and not tired because he is in a really fantastic moment. I told him: 'Rooney, if you want to score goals, you have to go in front of the goal'.
"He worked a lot, he ran a lot, he helped everyone in every moment - he is really generous on the pitch. For that reason, he couldn't score a lot of goals."
