Video: Of Course Wayne Rooney Scored a 30-Yard Stunner During His Everton Return

It was written in the stars for Wayne Rooney to hit the ground running as he sealed a dramatic return to Everton earlier in the week – and he’s done exactly that.

The former England captain, who started his career at Goodison Park, has scored a delightful 30-yard striker during this afternoon’s pre-season friendly against Gor Mahia FC.

And even by Rooney’s impeccable standards, it was a fantastic hit.

The 31-year-old wasn’t involved in a great deal of the action for the first half-hour.

However, he more than made up for it as the Toffees latest big-name acquisition turned and scored a goal that appeared eerily similar to his first ever Everton goal vs Arsenal in 2002:

 

Rooney left Everton in 2004, moving to Manchester United in a deal worth £25.6 million.

He of course went on to achieve legendary status at Old Trafford, becoming United’s all-time top scorer, having surpassed Sir Bobby Charlton.

Few are expecting Rooney to turn water into wine on his return to Merseyside, however, if he can keep scoring goals like this one, Ronald Koeman will be a very happy man.
