BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: I feel 100% ready, says Wayne Rooney

I'm 100% ready for World Cup - Rooney

Wayne Rooney insists he feels "100% fit" as England prepare to kick off their World Cup campaign against Italy in Manaus on Saturday.

The 28-year-old striker has faced criticism in the build-up to the tournament, with former Manchester United team-mate Paul Scholes suggesting he may be past his peak.

Phil Neville - who coaches Rooney at Old Trafford - thinks there is a "witch hunt" against Rooney, who says he is "fully focused" ahead of the tournament.

The forward says that United team-mate Danny Welbeck will be fit to face Italy despite limping out of training on Tuesday.
