Alan Shearer has voiced his support for Wayne Rooney and said that the Manchester United striker has the ability to match the best players in the world in Brazil this summer.

The former England captain suggested that his country's progress at the World Cup rests upon Rooney's form.  

Shearer said: "Wayne has got 38 goals for England, he is only 11 short of Bobby Charlton's record, and I think he will go on to break it. But he needs to go out and have a big tournament with England, and if he does that, he will be the key to us having a successful World Cup. When Rooney plays well, England play well.

"I am a fan of Rooney, I think he ticks all the boxes as a player, but for him to be put in the same bracket as Messi or Ronaldo, he needs to have a great tournament in Brazil - although having said that, Messi has yet to set the place on fire at a World Cup as well," said Shearer.
