Kek backs England for World Cup glory

Slovenia were drawn in Group C, alongside USA, Algeria and England.

“England can win it, they have a lot of the best players in the world in their team,” Kek said.

“They’re good tactically, have good players and have good discipline. England is one of the best teams in the world and that’s why they are one of the favourites for the tournament.

“They have individual quality and now that has been turned from individual quality into team quality. They are a strong team now and that has been down to Fabio Capello.”

“Everyone from England is asking me about Wayne Rooney, but I don’t think I should be talking about Wayne Rooney because England have some other big stars in the team other than him,” the 56-year-old said.

“When you talk about England you must talk about the team and not just one of the players.”
