Paul Scholes has urged England manager Roy Hodgson to put his faith in Ross Barkley at the World Cup and believes he can have a

similar impact to Wayne Rooney's memorable Euro 2004 campaign.

Barkley, 20, has six England caps and Nike Mercurial Vapor X FG has impressed in the recent warm-up matches as the Everton man has looked to inject speed and

excitement into Hodgson's side.

It remains to be seen if he will feature from the start in England's World Cup opener against Italy on Saturday night but Scholes,

who suggested recently that Rooney may have past his peak, believes Barkley is now in a place where the Manchester United forward was

leading into Euro 2004.

"Tell the world: this is how we play, attack! There is no point taking people like Raheem Sterling or Ross Barkley to Brazil 'for the

experience'. Play them."
Paul Scholes
"I was watching the England vs Ecuador friendly in an airport lounge, a bit back from the screen," he wrote in his Paddy Power blog.

"In the first half Ross went on a run and I thought, 'Bloody hell, is that Rooney?' Barkley made me think of Wayne at Euro 2004. I

had to take a second look because I thought it was Wayne."

An 18-year-old Rooney burst onto the international scene by scoring four goals at the European Championship a decade ago but is still

yet to find the back of the net during the World Cup finals.

Scholes wants to see England attack in Brazil, with flair players like Barkley nike mercurial vapor x and Liverpool's Raheem Sterling now taking centre

stage.


Italy midfielder Claudio Marchisio says he Nike Tiempo Legend IV Elite expects England to be a different side from the one they beat on penalties at Euro 2012.
"Now is a great chance for Roy Hodgson to give English football the identity we've lacked," he added.

"Tell the world: this is how we play, attack! There is no point taking people like Raheem Sterling or Ross Barkley to Brazil 'for the

experience'. Play them.

"Some people might say it's risky. But these players have the fitness and ability to get the ball back if they lose it (hopefully not

in dangerous positions). You want them to attack and give the opposition problems.

"Roy Hodgson has little to lose by going for the jugular. Will we be satisfied if England scrape through to the quarter finals

playing negative football?

"Let's not do that and take responsibility for what happens if we go for it. Let these England players off the leash."

Carlo Ancelotti has called on the Italian team to believe in their chances of winning the World Cup, even though Cesare Prandelli's side go into the tournament in unconvincing form. Confidence in the Italy camp is low as a result Nike CTR360 Maestri III FG of their pre-tournament preparations, drawing with Ireland and Luxemburg and failing to convince despite beating Brazilian club side Fluminese 5-3. However, the Real Madrid coach urged the four-time World Cup winners to pull in the same direction and take inspiration from his Nike Mercurial Soccer Cleats Madrid side that won the Soccer Cleats for sale Champions League last season. "When you take part in a World Cup there is always a lot of excitement and tension and everyone needs to chip in if you want to achieve something big," said Ancelotti in a letter published in La Gazzetta dello Sport. "However, people are sceptical about our chances, and do not believe in us. Well, I can guarantee that if the team and the coaching staff stay united and all read from the same page, then the atmosphere will become more favourable, and results are Nike Mercurial for sale more likely to go our way. "That is how Real Madrid won the Champions League. That's why now it's important to encourage Italians to get behind our lads." The Italian admitted that Prandelli's side are far from being the tournament favourites, but also pointed out Italy were unfancied before the victorious World Cups of 1982 and 2006. Italy begin their campaign against England in the stifling conditions of Amazonian city Manaus, before facing Costa Rica and then Uruguay. "We are in a difficult group," admitted Ancelotti, "but our opponents should be worried about our presence in it. One thing is for certain, facing Italy is difficult for every team. We are a strong team tactically, we are experienced and we have players that can make the difference."
