Wayne Rooney hailed what he believes are “good times” for England after the Three Lions booked their place at next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
The striker’s header set Roy Hodgson’s men on their way to a 2-0 win over Poland at Wembley which ensured they topped Group H.
Progression was secured by victory over Montenegro on Friday and this victory, and Rooney was a pleased man - especially after captain Steven Gerrard put the icing on the cake late on.
“We knew it was going to be a tough game, they had a couple of breaks and could have scored, but we played some great stuff in the first and second half,” he said after the game.
“Getting the goal gave us some belief, the confidence to go on. We believed we could win and then Stevie’s goal has seen us qualify.”
