Watch: Wayne Rooney Opens The Scoring With A Cracking Finish As United Take On Ipswich

Manchester United are currently playing Ipswich Town in the Carling Cup and Wayne Rooney is after opening the scoring with a fantastic finish.

It was never really billed as a big test for United and Louis van Gaal but one man who really needed to get on the scoresheet tonight was the struggling Wayne Rooney.

Despite a well-taken hat-trick in the Champions League, Rooney has yet to score a goal in the Premier League and many have recently commentated that the Iron Tulip should consider rotating his mis-firing forward.

However, tonight he once again showed why he is still Van Gaal’s main man. After a long ball over the top, Rooney controlled excellently before rounding two Ipswich defenders and firing past the keeper.

Check out Rooney’s incredible control and finish in the clip below.
