Wayne Rooney spoke exclusively to Sky Sports about Englands perfect qualifying campaign, their chances at Euro 2016 and his time as captain. Roy Hodgson named a 26-man squad for Englands Euro 2016 preparation friendlies against Turkey and Australia at the end of this month, and Rooney is more hopeful than ever that this could be their year.Here, he speaks with Sky Sports News HQs Nick Collins about Englands progress since the World Cup in 2014, as well as looking back at a successful European Qualifiers campaign and why there is plenty of optimism for the future... Rooney more hopeful than ever England a match for anyone at Euro 2016, says skipper On Englands 2-0 win in Switzerland after the World Cup...It was a big game for us. Wed obviously lost Steven Gerrard after the World Cup, and it was a change for us. Roy made me captain, and we knew how important it was, coming off the World Cup. There was a lot of pressure going into the game on Roy himself, and to get the victory in the way we did, we played a different style of football than we played over the previous two years and it worked. It was more exciting to watch and more enjoyable to play in. Included in Englands 100 per cent European Qualifiers campaign was a fine win in Switzerland On Englands 10 out of 10 European Qualifiers record...We mentioned it after the Switzerland game, we didnt want to get carried away. We had a good strong [group] of young players and we felt it was achievable.We knew it would be tough to do, but once that got close again, we felt that if we got 10 wins out of 10 it would stand us in good stead going into the tournament. It was something we aimed for and achieved. I know the players and manager were really happy, it showed a great consistency. Roy Hodgson has announced his England squad ahead of Euro 2016 On becoming England captain...I felt I was the natural successor to Steven as captain, and the manager did too. Its something I was delighted to do, and I want to do it to be successful as well. Its something I really take pride in and want to do to the best of my ability. I think the young lads in the squad have helped a lot, I feel its an exciting time for English football with the squad we have.To be a leader of those players, and to try and direct them in the right way, both on and off the pitch, is something I want to be successful at. I put a lot of effort in to do that. Rooney became England captain after the World Cup in Brazil The manager involves me in a lot of decisions. Obviously theres myself, and then weve put a team together with a few of the other senior players. If decisions on behalf of the team need making, I will go to those players, talk through it and decide what is best for the team. But of course, you have to be a role model and ambassador for the country, and thats what Ive tried to do to the best of my ability. QUIZ: England Euros squads Test your knowledge of previous England Euros squad announcements with this tricky quiz... On adapting his game...As a player you are always adapting. You adapt to your team-mates, you adapt to the different coaches you are working under. It depends what the coaches want from you.Throughout my career Ive adapted to different situations and different teams Ive played in, and I have no problem doing it. In football you need players who can play in different positions. Ive always felt like I can play in different positions. Roy Hodgson thinks Rooney is key for England but admits he doesnt have to pick him in the starting XI On his preferred position...Obviously I want to play as striker but Ive always believed I am capable of playing in different positions. I think you saw in World Cup 2006 with Owen Hargreaves, he was probably Englands best player, purely for the fact he could play in different positions.To have players like that in your squad is really important. The good thing that Roy has now is that he can look at the opponents and pick a midfield which is best for beating the opponent. We havent always had that.He could change the whole 11 if he had to now, and we would still have the chance of winning the game. Jamie Carragher thinks Rooney may have to play in midfield to make room for Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy On Englands attacking options...Weve got players who can play anywhere across that front line. Myself, Jamie Vardy, Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge can play out wide too. Its always difficult for opponent as well.Its going to be tough for the manager as well, Im sure, to decide which players he will play in which games. But thats why hes manager, Im sure he will make the right decision when it comes to it.Experience is important, but the youth and energy of the other players is equally as important. The England captain is keen to be a leader for the incoming younger players On Englands chances at Euro 2016...I feel weve got a very good squad. Its probably the first time Ive felt the squad is capable in any given game of matching any team. But obviously its one thing having that, and another being able to do that consistently throughout a tournament.You never know with the players weve got how well they can do. You saw in the last World Cup we went out at the group stage. Weve had a good Euro Qualifiers campaign, but we need to make sure that we dont slack, that we keep going and keep pushing forward, and give ourselves every possible chance.On the Wayne Rooney Foundation...Its all about sick children but also about children who need a better start in life. Obviously, having three children myself I felt they were the most important charities to raise money for. Its something Im extremely proud to be able to do and Id like to thank Manchester United for giving me the opportunity to be able to do that. Hopefully the money raised can change a lot of peoples lives.
