Manchester United looked comfortable in their Champions League opener against Bayer Leverkusen at Old Trafford, but their 1-0 lead was cancelled out in the 54th minute by this fine strike from Simon Rolfes.

United responded soon after, with this improvised finish from Robin van Persie.

David Moyes' team pulled further ahead when Wayne Rooney, atoning for this miss earlier, swept past the Leverkusen goalkeeper to make it 3-1 and grab his second of the night.

Rooney's new headband may never come off.
