England putting whole hearted effort in wide-open Euro: Cahill

WAYNE Rooney is "not bothered" that Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland have joined England in the Euro 2016 knockouts.

But the man who claims to have been "brainwashed" by his father into supporting Liverpool and revering their England stars said: "The guys that I watched, Michael Owen and Steve McManaman and players like that, are all gone - and Steven Gerrard also".

"We have five or six match-winners in our team and I can not say we have always had that", said the captain.

Rooney was one of six players dropped for the final group game against Slovakia, which ended 0-0 despite Hodgson's side having 29 shots and 61% possession.

"We are here and we want to win it".

Skipper Rooney, who has been part of just one knockout win - against Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup - in five previous tournaments, insists his Three Lions will never have a better chance of going all the way than now lies before them.

"If this was four years ago, and you were saying we have to play France, Spain, Germany, we would have been anxious", Rooney said.

Rooney is set to be restored to the team against Iceland after being on the bench against Slovakia, meaning he will make his 115th global appearance - tying David Beckham's record for an outfield player for England.

But I am happy with the way it is going and my role in the team.

Iceland marked their maiden European Championship appearance by finishing second in Group F with four points, and coach Hodgson believes he knows exactly what to expect from the tiny island nation in the last 16.

"If this was four years ago and you were saying you have to play France, Spain, Germany, you would have been anxious".

"We are here and we want to win it".

"I think the gap has changed, and not just with ourselves to then teams but with the likes of Wales".

"We know that if we're to go further in this competition we're going to have to beat some very good teams".

"We do have to be a bit more ruthless and with the chances we've had, we need to take a few more of them, as we saw in the last game, if you don't it can cost you a result", he admitted. "The gap to get to those teams is not as big". Whether it happens remains to be seen, but we are not going to say that getting to the quarter-finals will be a sign of progress.

"If I have the chance to step up and win us games, then I'll do that".
