Wojciech Szczesny believes England are capable of winning next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

The Arsenal goalkeeper was unable to prevent Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard scoring in a 2-0 victory over the Poles at Wembley on Tuesday night.

Roy Hodgson’s men are among the dark horses to lift world football’s most prestigious prize, and Szczesny hopes the Three Lions triumph in Brazil.

“I thought offensively England were fantastic. They created a lot of chances, which was probably good for me as it meant I could make a couple of good saves, but I am obviously very disappointing about the result,” Szczesny is quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

“England are also solid in defence now, so if they keep going like that and can improve a bit more, then surely they will have a chance at the World Cup.

“If they can go to Brazil with the same attitude which beat us, then they will be one of the favourites, and I think they believe they are. I hope they can do very well.

“They can go all the way. Obviously if I was there I would be hoping Poland could win it, but I will be hoping that England can now go all the way and win it.

“There are no realistic targets when you go to the World Cup, you just want to win and make your dream come true.”
