Sevilla ace Luis Fabiano believes Manchester United's Wayne Rooney can win the World Cup golden boot.

Fabiano hopes to get among the goals in South Africa but he cannot see anyone stopping England star Rooney or Spain's David Villa as the top goalscorer of the tournament.

Germany's Miroslav Klose won the award with five goals at the 2006 World Cup on his home soil.

But Seville striker Fabiano expects Rooney and Villa to score even more this summer.

He said: "Rooney and Villa are players that can fight for the Golden Boot.

"Lionel Messi will also score a lot of goals and I hope to be among them as well."
