Rooney proud of Man Utd super strike

Wayne Rooney was delighted with his wonder goal in Manchester United's 2-0 win at West Ham United.

Rooney's two goals on the night moved him ahead of Jack Rowley into third on the list of United's all-time top-scorers, with a total of 212 career goals.

Only Denis Law (237) and Bobby Charlton (249) are left for Rooney to eclipse, and the 28-year-old has time and opportunity on his side.

Looking back at his first goal on Saturday, Rooney said on Sky Sports 1: "It's just instinct, I've turned and had a quick look and seen the goalkeeper off his line.

"It's one of those I've tried many times and thankfully today it's gone in. It's up there, I wouldn't say it's my favourite."
