Wayne Rooney scores his 250th Manchester United goal

Wayne Rooney breaks Manchester United goal scoring record with sublime free kick

Manchester United striker, Wayne Rooney has today broken Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal scoring record.

Rooney equalised for the Red Devil’s in added time, at the end of the Premier League fixture at Stoke City. He hit sublime Freekick from just outside the penalty area, which looped over the goalkeeper.

Rooney’s recent form has been questionable, but his ability has never been questioned and today’s goal proves he is most definitely not finished as a Manchester United player.

The forward burst onto the scene as a sixteen year old with Everton, scoring a wonderful goal against Arsenal.

The forward continued his rise and shone for England at Euro 2004. After the tournament, he signed for Manchester United and has today become the clubs record goalscorer, with 250 goals. This surpasses club icon, Sir Bobby Charlton, who scored 249 between 1956 and 1973.

Many former players, as well as fans have sent their congratulations to the record breaker.
