London, Apr 26: World famous English striker Wayne Rooney was on Sunday, Apr 25 crowned the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) player of the year.

At the award ceremony, the Manchester United player also announced his readiness for the upcoming World Cup 2010.

24-year-old Rooney was forced to miss a couple of games in the recent past due to his groin injury.

"I'm disappointed to miss a couple of games. Hopefully I will play before the season finishes," he told guests at the PFA dinner.

When asked if he would be physically ready for the World Cup, he declared, "No problems for the World Cup."

He, however, dismissed the beliefs that he is key to England's victory in World Cup 2010, scheduled to kick start in Jun 2010 in South Africa.

"We've got a lot of great players. If I get injured, so be it," he said.
