Evans missed the win at Everton due to injury.
“It was incredible," said Evans, speaking to Sky Sports News after receiving his MBE.
"It was one of them where I wanted to show my kids straight away. I was watching the game at home and I was just about to leave (when it happened). Obviously all the comparisons are with Rooney's goal from a few years ago against City.
"It was amazing technique and I'm really pleased for the lad."
