Will Greenwood: 'England can win Rugby World Cup'

Former centre Will Greenwood says that England can win the Rugby World Cup.

Former England centre Will Greenwood has said that England can win the Rugby World Cup.

England defeated Ireland 21-13 in their final warm-up match on Saturday after losing to France two weeks ago.

"I've always felt they could win this World Cup at home at Twickenham," Greenwood told Sky Sports News.

"What the game also highlighted was there was clearly a lot of pressure in Paris. There were 39 men in the squad. They were not sure who was making the cut and therefore they were afraid of making mistakes.

"We've not gone from the world's worst team against France to the world's best team against Ireland but what we have done is settle the nerves. They are happy now and cannot wait for the Fiji game."

England start their Rugby World Cup campaign against Fiji at Twickenham on September 18.
