Wayne Rooney will make impact for England in Brazil, says Ryan Giggs
Wayne Rooney is ready to finally make his mark at a World Cup, says his temporary Manchester United manager Ryan Giggs.
The England forward has failed to show his talent on the previous two World Cup campaigns in 2006 and 2010, but Giggs feels that will change this time around.
Sky Sports quoted the current Red Devils boss, he said: "Wayne is at the peak of his powers.
"Wayne is a top player. He is at a good age. I know for a fact he can't wait for it. He has had a fantastic season and he is ready to make an impact."
One of the reasons behind Rooney previous struggles to make an impact at the 2006 and 2010 tournaments was injury.
The England forward will sit out United's final game of the season against Southampton with a groin injury, however Giggs insists that is nothing worth worrying about.
"Wayne will be fine for the World Cup," the Welshmen added.
"It was just a little groin strain. He is fine. He has done all the work in the gym.
"He will be fine. He is going away next week and working on his fitness as well so it has probably helped him. The injury has probably done him a favour."
