The Manchester United ace's effort took a deflection off a defender to loop over Julio Cesar in the Brazil goal.
"Both English goals were beautiful, Rooney's one deflected in off Fernando's back, it was a bit lucky," he told Globo Esporte.
"We played well after conceding, but we could we improve a lot, especially in the first half, compared to other games.
"Everything was almost perfect this Sunday, only the victory didn't happen. The fans were great, we will win when we have to face a big team."
