Owen Hargreaves has no doubts former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney has had a big impact on the England camp.

He believes he has influenced the team even though he has not played yet.

The 31-year-old, speaking at the McDonald's UEFA EURO 2012™ Player Escort event, said: "He gets on with everyone.

"He's experienced - he knows the environment of a major competition.

"He's good to have around; he keeps it light and loose for the other players and can help keep people focused."
