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.
