Slovenia defender Bostjan Cesar has promised Wayne Rooney an 'unpleasant experience' in the World Cup this summer.
The England striker's challenge with the former West Brom man in September's Wembley friendly left Cesar nursing an ankle injury.
England's World Cup draw has placed them in Group C alongside Slovenia, USA and Algeria, with Cesar keen to renew acquaintances with the Manchester United forward.
Fabio Capello's men claimed a 2-1 success over Slovenia in that meeting, but have been warned they will need to be on their guard in Port Elizabeth on 23rd June.
Cesar said: "I don't have fond memories of that game.
"The whole of Europe knows what Rooney did. He deliberately tried to injure me.
"It's not sportsmanlike. I have a clear conscience, but I doubt he has one.
"We will give our all to make the game against us an unpleasant experience for Rooney and his team-mates.
"England are the favourites, but we are confident that we can beat anybody."
