England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney backs his former team-mate Owen Hargreaves as the injury plagued midfielder appears close to joining rivals Manchester City.

The 25-year-old is looking to reproduce his club form as England play their Euro 2012 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia on Friday evening before facing Wales at Wembley on Tuesday.

With 11 points from five games England are joint leaders of Group G with Montenegro, whom they travel to play in their final qualifier on 7th October.
