London, Jun 17 (ANI): The war of words between arch-rivals England and Germany intensified ahead of their possible last-16 encounter in the World Cup, with ace striker Wayne Rooney being saying he would love to face Joachim Low's side and knock them out of the World Cup.
Rooney reacted defiantly as the war of words between the two rivals heated up in South Africa.
Asked if he would like to meet the Germans in the last 16, Rooney replied: "Of course. It would be nice to beat them."
Rooney also took a dig at German football legend Franz Beckenbauer, who has accused Fabio Capello's men of being a "kick and rush team".
"We don't listen to him. We know how we play and it's not kick and run," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
Rooney slammed the Germans for being arrogant after beating Australia 4-0. "It's how you finish a tournament and not how you start," he said.
He added: "We'll win our group." (ANI)
