Wayne Rooney has insisted that he would like to play for England in next month's friendly against Sweden.

Manager Roy Hodgson is expected to rest a number of big names for the trip to Stockholm in what will be the first match held in the country's new Friends Arena.

However, Rooney has made it clear that he is keen to feature for the Three Lions whenever he can.

"Of course, you want to play," said the striker. "I want to play all the games, if that's possible.

"Hopefully I can stay in good form for Manchester United and the [England] manager will pick me.

"We're used to playing Saturday and Wednesday, Saturday and Tuesday, at club level. We've been doing that for years. So a game for your country is certainly something you want to play in."

England take on Sweden at the Friends Arena, Stockholm, on November 14.
