Operating in his favoured No.10 role behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rooney latched onto a nice through-ball from the Swede just after the half-hour mark and proceeded to coolly chip the ball over the helpless Feyenoord keeper:

Not too bad a finish from someone supposedly over the hill,eh?
This wasn’t just any normal goal for Rooney; this goal created a little slice of history for the England captain, who has endured an absolutely torrid few weeks.
Rooney is now Manchester United’s all-time top European scorer in his own right after overtaking Ruud van Nistelrooy, and he is now just two goals behind Bobby Charlton’s all-time club record.
That’s Rooney’s second goal in consecutive European matches – is he slowly finding his form again? What do you think?
