England striker Wayne Rooney says that he wants to win the World Cup in Brazil next summer and perform to the best of his abilities.

Wayne Rooney has insisted that he is "determined" to turn on the style for England at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

However, the Manchester United striker claims that he is not going to "put any added pressure" on himself at next summer's tournament.

"I'm very determined to [play well for England at a major international]," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying. "That is what I have wanted to do in all the other tournaments and it hasn't happened.

"I have always been determined to do well and I want to try to help England be successful. I won't put any added pressure on myself but obviously I want to try to perform.

"This is my 10th or 11th year playing for England so the obvious goal is to try to be successful and win trophies so that would obviously be the icing on the cake. Hopefully I still have got time on my hands when I can do that."

Rooney has scored 38 goals in 86 appearances for England.
