Brazil taught us a lesson says Wayne Rooney--yeah, u bet.

WAYNE ROONEY admitted England were taught a painful lesson by Brazil.

England's stand-in captain Rooney has warned his team mates they cannot afford to be caught cold again at the World Cup after claiming they needed a wake-up call against Brazil.

Manchester United striker Rooney admitted his big night was ruined by the Brazil defeat and says England must improve.

Rooney said: "We started really slow in the second half. You can't afford to do that against opposition like Brazil because they will punish you.

"It is obviously a great feeling to captain your country. I am very proud and it was a good night for myself but disappointing for the team.
