Published Add your comment

It is no secret Wayne Rooney knows how to find the back of the net. The Manchester United forward has made a living from scoring goals.

The striker highlighted his ability by breaking Bobby Charlton's 45-year England record, scoring his 50th goal for his country, with a penalty against Switzerland in midweek.

The 29-year-old has also scored an impressive 233 goals in 485 appearances for the Red Devils during an 11-year spell.

The Red Devils star gives advice on how to lose your marker, beat the goalkeeper and how to beat your opponent.


Rooney, with the exception of a hat-trick in the 4-0 win over Club Brugge, has failed the find the back of the net this season.

His form has been a cause for concern among Manchester United fans and the striker is currently on a ten game goalless run in the Premier League.

Rooney and United supporters will be hoping he can put some of his instructions to practice, and end his goal drought, when Liverpool visit Old Trafford this weekend.

Games between the two English giants always run high on emotion, but this particular fixture is vital to the Red Devils, as they look to get back to winning ways.

Having scored two goals on international duty, albeit from the penalty spot, the Old Trafford faithful will be hoping Rooney is back to his best for the North West derby.
