Poland 1 England 1: We must improve, admits Wayne Rooney
Poland 1 England 1: Wayne Rooney admits the Three Lions need to improve if they are to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil
Wayne Rooney admitted England must improve after securing a disappointing draw with Poland in their 2014 World Cup qualifier in Warsaw.
However, Roy Hodgson’s men were thoroughly unconvincing and in the 71st minute the home side equalised, with Kamil Glik out-jumping Joleon Lescott and heading past Joe Hart to tie the match.
“Do England have to improve to qualify? Yes, of course. We know we can play a lot better than that,” said Rooney.
“But at least we got the point. It was a hard-fought point. It was a difficult game, a difficult pitch. We weren’t at our best but we dug in and got a draw.
“We know we can play better but this is a difficult place to come. It is a decent point.
“We knew it was a tough group, but we’re confident. We believe in ourselves and we believe we are the best team in the group, so we are confident of qualifying.”
