On 24 April 2005, Wayne Rooney hit a glorious volley from distance past Shay Given in the Newcastle net as Manchester United came back to record a 2-1 victory.

The United and England captained has cast his mind back to that spectacular goal as the corresponding fixture comes around 10 years on.

“Looking forward to our game against Newcastle tomorrow and building on Saturday’s win," Rooney told his official Facebook page. "Here I am celebrating with Roy Keane and Wes Brown after my volley against them in 2005, one of my favourites from my career so far!”

The best ever?

It’s one of a few fantastic goals that Rooney has bagged over the years, but which was the best?

His first ever professional goal, for Everton, against Arsenal at the age of 16? Last year’s half-way line lob against West Ham? That unforgettable bicycle kick in the Manchester derby?

There are 290 to choose from...

Give us your choice below! Hopefully Rooney can add to the list on Sunday.
