Man Utd's Rooney shrugs off England scoring heroics

He compared the game against Russia to when England earned a goalless draw with turkey in Istanbul to qualify for Euro 2004.

"We have got the job done today and we've got a similar game in Russia to the one we had to tackle in Istanbul a few years ago," said Rooney.

"We know it will be difficult and it will be a tough game - but we've got to go out there and attempt to do the job we know we have to do.

"It was a nervy night over there in Turkey. We had a few chances and could have won it.

"But we went out there and did a job and I am confident we can do the same again.

"There is definitely the belief and quality in this squad to get the same sort of result.

"There are a few younger players in the squad now - but the same, if not more, quality."
