Wayne Rooney believes that the team spirit in the England camp can help them to beat Italy in their Euro 2012 quarter-final meeting on Sunday.
The striker returned from suspension to score the winning goal as Roy Hodgson's men beat Ukraine to finish top of Group D.
Now the 26-year-old says the side are confident they can prevail in Kiev and set up a prospective meeting with Germany in the semi-finals.
He said: "It's not going to be an easy game, but we've got the players, we've got the belief and the togetherness to do a job on them.
"Once you get to this stage of the competition anything can happen.
"We're more organised than ever. The lads have all been fighting for each other, so I think we've got a great chance.
"It's important that we believe in ourselves. We've got a great group of players and we're confident. We feel good, we've prepared well and we're really looking forward to it."
Rooney dedicated his winning goal to his manager, who selected him to go to Poland and Ukraine despite his suspension for the first two games.
The Manchester United man continued: "I wanted to repay the manager for sticking with me. It probably wasn't an easy decision to bring me to the Euros so for him to bring me straight back into the team and then to score was a great feeling."
It was his first outing since 13th May and, although Rooney admits he wasn't at his best, he thinks the game has done him good.
"I was in and out," he added.
"A couple of times I was a bit sloppy with the ball but that is only get better for playing the game.
"Maybe a few years ago I would have run round trying to do everything in the first 20 minutes, but you've got to try and feel your way into the game.
"I tried to do that - I didn't always do it as well as I wanted to, but that was always going to be the case I think. As the game went on I felt stronger and that will help us for Sunday."
