Having previously stated the game was evenly balanced, Wayne Rooney believes England's belief and togetherness will inspire Roy Hodgson's team to victory over Italy in its EURO 2012 quarter-final on Sunday (Monday morning AEST).
The striker had claimed the game was "50-50", but later appeared more bullish over England's chances when he said they could "do a job" on
He told Talksport: "We're more organised than ever. The lads have all been fighting for each other, we want to do this together, so I think we've got a great chance. We feel good, we've prepared well and we're really looking forward to it.
"It's important that we believe in ourselves. We've got a great group of players and we're confident.
"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."

He added: "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 (Monday AEST)."
UEFA president Michel Platini said preparations for Euro 2016 were "progressing well" after a meeting of the organising committee in Lille.
