Retired cricketer Darren Gough believes anything more than a quarter-final spot at the upcoming World Cup will be a "huge, huge bonus" for England.

The man who led England's bowling attack for a large chunk of the 1990's was speaking to ITV News Sports correspondent Ian Payne ahead of the tournament which begins tomorrow.

The 46 year-old joked that England's cricketers can even expect recognition from the Queen if they manage to reach the final.

"If we get to the final, let's get the MBEs out and Knighthoods!" he joked.

Watch highlights of England's opening match against Australia on ITV at 10:35pm on Saturday 14th February.
