Wayne Rooney Nets 200th Career Goal with Manchester United

Ken ChinSocial Media StaffSeptember 17, 2013

Wayne Rooney cemented his spot in Manchester United lore by scoring his 200th career goal with a brace Tuesday against Bayer Leverkusen. His two goals figured prominently in the final score, as United went on to win 4-2.

The milestone tally was a beauty, as Rooney beat the keeper to the near post on a misplayed ball by the Leverkusen defense.

Here was his first of the night: a terrific goal off a volley. 

His second, which was the 200th of his career, was a brilliant effort. 

 Congratulations, Wayne!
