Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 26, 2014

Wayne Rooney scored a sensational goal from distance to give Manchester United a 1-0 lead against AS Roma in their pre-season friendly Saturday.

Rooney struck the ball with precision and swerve, beating goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis with a shot that nestled in the corner of the goal.

Rooney added another goal in stoppage time of the opening half—with United also getting a score from Juan Mata—to put his team up 3-0 at the break.
