Rooney feels it's the best he's seen since being involved with England.
"It is great," said Rooney.
"It is probably the best group we have had since I have been in the squad.
"Rickie Lambert is scoring goals for Southampton and has done really well for England. Jermain (Defoe) and I have been around a bit longer and Sturridge and (Danny) Welbeck bring a lot of energy.
"Overall, it is a really good blend."
