Wayne Rooney has said that it will be extra sweet if England can beat Germany at Wembley tomorrow evening, the Express understands.
The rivals are preparing to face each other for the first time since Joachim Low’s men beat the Three Lions 4-1 in the last sixteen of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and Rooney is determined to help Roy Hodgson’s men secure a famous win this time around.
The 28 year old is edging ever closer to Michael Owen’s record of forty international goals, and will draw level with him should he hit the net twice tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the Premier League champions are ready to offer Javier Hernandez a new contract at Old Trafford as they look to stave off interest from North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
The 25 year old, whose Mexico side all but secured qualification for next summer’s World Cup finals after beating New Zealand 5-1 in the first leg of their play-off last Wednesday, has started just one league game so far this season with most of his game time coming in the League Cup and Champions League.
However, manager David Moyes has stated his desire to keep him at the club, who he joined from Gualalajara in 2010.
