London, May 18 (ANI): Spinner Graeme Swann is sure that England can make it two World Cup wins by clinching the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

He backed the England footballers to follow the cricketers and make it a double glory for the country inside three months, The Sun reports.

Swann was the Bowler of the Tournament in England's World Twenty20 triumph.

"Winning a World Cup is something I can recommend. It is a great feeling. The world's biggest sporting tournament is coming up in a couple of weeks and I feel England can go all the way," he said.

"It sounds a bit cheesy to say 'We've shown you how to do it'. But I sincerely hope they do. The country will go crazy. I can't wait for kick-off," Swann said.

"I genuinely believed when we came to the Caribbean that we were going to win the tournament here. And I have the same feeling about the football. I reckon they are going to do it," he added. (ANI)
