Wayne Rooney is putting to one side England’s first victory over Brazil in 23 years on Wednesday, and urging his international team-mates to concentrate on qualifying for the World Cup next summer.

"It's a great feeling to beat Brazil, but the two games next month are more important," the Manchester United striker said.

"It's a great result but at the end of the day it's only a friendly. It's not a competitive game.

"Now it's all about trying to progress as a team. The next step for us is to try to qualify for the World Cup."
