England football manager Fabio Capello has set his team a minimum target of reaching the world cup semi-finals in South Africa this year.

The Italian says England are one of the leading sides at the tournament, after the team cruised through the qualifying stage.

Capello also says striker Wayne Rooney sits along Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the world's top players.

England have been drawn with the United States, Algeria and Slovenia in Group C of the tournament.
