Last weekend Wayne Rooney scored a stunning, game tying free kick vs Stoke City to surpass Sir Bobby Charlton as Manchester United’s all-time leading goal scorer. It was his 250th for the Red Devils. Alas, soccer is a a fickle game. Arguably no one more than Wazza has been picked apart by a cannibalistic English media and sure, his play has declined over the past 2-3 years, but what remains undeniable is that he is one of the best to ever put on a United and England shirt.
In case you’ve forgotten here is a list of his accolades:
All-time leading goal scorer for England – 53 goals, All-time leading goal scorer for Manchester United – 250 goals, 5 x EPL Titles, 1 x Champions League Title, 1 x FA Cup Title, 3 x English Cup Titles, 1x Club World Cup Title, 5 x Community Shield Titles.
All of these jaw-dropping accolades were achieved with a pair of Total 90’s or Hypervenoms on his feet. As one of Nike’s longtime poster boys, they honored his career and historic feat with a massive banner, draped over the Hotel Football which stands across from Old Traford. It simply says Rooney, with 250 O’s, one for each of his goals.
