In the reverse fixture in November, England went behind, before eventually winning 3-1 and Wayne Rooney says that this woke England up.
“Going behind really woke us up,” said Rooney, who hit back immediately with an equaliser.
“We had to show our character and that’s what we did. We produced a great reaction and it was a good day for us in the end, even though it had been tough at the start.
“Obviously I’m proud to have won 100 caps and ended up on the winning side. It is a great honour to represent England so often and hopefully I will do so on many more occasions, but not many players have reached 100 and no one can take that away from me.”
England are odds-on at 5/6 in the individual match markets, and are more than capable of collecting three points, with Rooney on offer at 6/5 to score anytime.
Theo Walcott, meanwhile, is in great form following his return from injury, and is 6/4 in the same market. His pace will give England a genuine threat and Roy Hodgson is likely to pick him from the start.
“I’ve been around the England camp for a long time, I feel very old,” Walcott said. “You suddenly realise that the players you used to look up to, like Steve [Gerrard] and Frank [Lampard], are not there any more, and people are looking up to you. We are a young team again now.
“Wayne Rooney told me the other day that he feels very old when he joins up with England, but the main thing is that we play without fear and we are undefeated in eight games. We have been getting consistently good results. What we need to do now is take that into a tournament.
“This is a young England squad but the manager has made sure everyone in the team knows their job. He has shown faith in me by bringing me back into the squad and I don’t want to let anyone down.”
