Wayne Rooney takes on corner kick challenge

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is the latest player to take on bwin's corner kick challenge - but how did the England international compare to his teammates?

The 28-year-old, who scored one of the best goals of his career against West Ham on Saturday afternoon, was attempting to beat Juan Mata's score of 200. Michael Carrick (150) was second on the list prior to Rooney's attempt, while goalkeeper David De Gea (85) recorded 25 points more than Anderson (60).

The aim of the game is to kick the ball from the corner quadrant into one of three goals - the closest (worth 10 points), a larger middle goal (worth 25 points) and a smaller goal in the distance (worth 75 points). Points obtained during the 30-second period are then tallied up.

Rooney started fantastically well, hitting the smaller goal inside the first four seconds. However, the striker didn't manage to hit the target for another 12 seconds, when he added another 25 points to his tally. The England star eventually had to settle for a total of 110 points, which leaves him in third place on the Manchester United leader-board.
