Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary says Manchester United's England star Wayne Rooney is the best player in the world.

El-Hadary, 37, says England’s strike force can fire Fabio Capello’s men to World Cup glory this summer.

El-Hadary said: “Rooney is one of the best forwards in the world, if not the best. He dominates games and is definitely up there with the top five.

“He has all the attributes and England now have Rooney, Crouch, Heskey, Lampard, Gerrard who are all special players, are great going forward and can score goals.”
