We can stop England's Rooney says Montenegro's Brnovic

Montenegro manager Branko Brnovic is confident that his side can deal with England dangerman Wayne Rooney tomorrow night.

The two nations meet in a top-of-the-table Group G clash for Euro2012 qualifying in Podgorica and although Brnovic is well aware that the Manchester United striker is in top form, he knows that he is only human.

"Rooney is one of the best strikers in the world, a fantastic player, and their other strikers are also strong," he said.

"But there is no player who can't be stopped."

He also feels that the English back four will be stretched with the likes of Mirko Vucinic and Stevan Jovetic roaming the Montenegrin attack.

"I think the England defence will have more problems wondering how to deal with Mirko and Jovetic than we will have with their attackers," he added.

"Everyone plays better if Mirko plays to his best level. I know very well the qualities of my two forwards."
