Manchester United were keen to do well in the Champions League this season after disappointingly exiting at the group stage last year. Rooney and his teammates didn't disappoint, winning their group after just four games.
The fourth of those took place in a rain-soaked Braga. Despite going 1-0 down goals from Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and a Rooney penalty sealed a 3-1 win and United were through to the next stage.
