Playing against Arsenal at Goodison Park roughly 15 years after scoring his first senior goal vs the Gunners, Wayne Rooney has just reminded everyone what he is capable of…
Arsenal dominated the early exchanges in Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon with several Gunners guilty of spurning goal scoring opportunities.
However, when Everton’s chance came, Wayne Rooney was quick to remind everyone that he was once one of the greatest players on the face of the planet and is still capable of the odd moment of magic.
Picking up the ball outside the Arsenal box, the all time Manchester United top goal scorer used Per Mertesacker as a marker as he bent the ball around the German centre back and into the top corner of the net.
Rooney’s sensational effort can be found in the clip below while his debut effort vs the Gunners is also included as a basis for comparison.
