Wayne Rooney helps Galaxy XI save planet against aliens

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and Chelsea midfielder Oscar have both played their part in helping save the planet, as the Galaxy XI recorded a 4-3 win over aliens in a rather elaborate advertising campaign.

The world is not under attack and football isn't the only thing that will save us! It is in this Samsung advert however, and the biggest names in the game came through in the end for the sake of the human race.

After months of build-up, the final instalment of the Galaxy XI has been released, and unsurprisingly it features a fantastic comeback from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and World Cup winner Mario Gotze.

Oscar's pass

After an opening save from Iker Casillas, Chelsea star Oscar then helps get the ball rolling with a fine pass which eventually leads to a goal from Radamel Falcao.

The Brazilian helped his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup this summer, and Jose Mourinho will be hoping his computer-generated form here can be matched on the pitch at Stamford Bridge next season.

Rooney's goal

Now 3-2 down, it fell to Rooney to score a stunning equaliser, with an overhead-kick beating the keeper to level the scores.

The England star might have suffered a disappointing World Cup, but this strike was reminiscent of his incredible strike for Manchester United in the derby against City back in 2001.

And, with Louis van Gaal now at the helm of the Red Devils, Rooney will be hoping to return to top form at Old Trafford next season.

Ronaldo's winner

After another fine save from Casillas, who ironically had a disappointing World Cup, the Galaxy XI then go on the charge in injury-time in search of a winner, and it's the Portuguese superstar who gets it.

Great rival Messi lays on the perfect pass for his 'teammate', who beats the keeper with an acrobatic effort and wins the game for the sake of the planet.

Who would believe it!?!
