Rooney Scores Spectacular Goal On Everton Return

Wayne Rooney wasted no time on his return to Everton by scoring a spectacular goal and says it was a great feeling to score for the team again. Rooney took just 34 minutes to his mark return to his boyhood club, bending a stunning 30-yard strike past keeper Boniface Oluoch to break the deadlock in the Blues’ 2-1 pre-season friendly win over Gor Mahia in Tanzania.

 The goal was reminiscent of Rooney’s first ever league goal for the Blues against Arsenal in 2002. The 31-year-old started up front on his Everton return and played 45 minutes before manager Ronald Koeman replaced his entire starting XI at half-time .

He said “To score for Everton again is a great feeling. It’s something I’ve been thinking of for the last couple of weeks, once I knew [the move] was happening. Thankfully, I’ve done it in today’s game and that 45 minutes will only help. I just received the ball from out wide and I was in a bit of space so I took my chance and thankfully it went in. I was pleased with it. It’s a good start but I think we have to improve still. It’s early days and we knew it would be a tough game in tough conditions but I thought we did well.”
