Dante says that he is looking forward to playing against Wayne Rooney when Brazil take on England at Wembley on Wednesday.

Brazil defender Dante has said that he is relishing the chance to take on Wayne Rooney during his side's friendly international against England at Wembley on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old Bayern Munich centre-back will make his debut for the Selecao in London.

"I'm really pleased to have got the call and I'm looking forward to the prospect [of facing Rooney]," AFP quotes him as saying.

"He's a world-class striker - a high quality player. His movement is fantastic. He's got everything.

"You have to be right on your game against those sorts of players because they can turn a game in a flash."

Dante joined Bayern from Borussia Monchengladbach at the start of the 2012-13 season.
