Wayne Rooney finally scored the first ever World Cup goal of his career on Thursday, and it was a big one. Rooney netted the equalizer for England as they were trailing Uruguay 1-0 late in the second half.
Thursday’s game was Rooney’s 10th career World Cup game, and people were amazed by his scoring drought. He has 39 goals in international play but had scored no goals on 28 shots in the World Cup prior to tapping the ball in on a beautiful assist from Glen Johnson.
Rooney’s 216 goals for Manchester United are the third most in club history. I’m sure he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders now that he has found the back of the net in a World Cup game.
