Video: Wayne Rooney Curls Home His First Goal for Derby County

Wayne Rooney properly announced his return to English football tonight by scoring his first goal for Derby County.

The England and Manchester United all-time top-scorer returned to play for the Championship club officially at the turn of the year, and made his debut in the 2-1 win over Barnsley on January 2.

It feels sort of strange seeing a player of Rooney’s calibre and experience turning out in the Championship, eh?

What do you think of the goal?
