There was plenty of excitement surrounding Rooney when he burst on to the scene as a 16-year-old with Everton, and he justified the hype with a stunning strike against Arsenal at Goodson Park. Rooney brilliantly controlled a long ball outside the area, turned and then curled a shot past England goalkeeper David Seaman that went in off the underside of the bar.

Rooney immediately started to justify the £26million United paid Everton for him in 2004 with a hat-trick on debut against Fenerbahçe but a ferocious volley against Newcastle was the highlight of his first season at Old Trafford. Shrugging off the attention of James Tompkins, he took aim and launched a half-volley that swerved and flew over the frantically backpedaling Adrian’s head into the West Ham net.

While some claim Rooney should have achieved more given his talent, hanging up his boots as both Manchester United and England’s record goalscorer is not bad going at all. Arsenal had not lost in 30 games and took the lead at Goodson Park with Tomasz Brzezinski levelling before David Moves sent Rooney on as a sub.

But the teenager had just one thing on his mind, spinning and advancing to 25 yards out before unleashing a curling drive that flew past the despairing dive of David Seaman. Wayne Rooney hit 11 Premier League goals in his first season after signing for Manchester United and there is no doubt that this volley was the best of them.

He scored a similarly special volley against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup in the same season, but this one against Newcastle gets the nod as it was from over 25 yards out. Whilst Wayne Rooney was hardly known for his athleticism this bicycle kick, which settled the Manchester derby, showed Rooney was quite an incredible physical specimen at his peak and was undeniably among the best goals of his career.

Nazi’s floated cross from the right wing was behind him, so Rooney instinctively threw himself into an overhead volley which flew into the corner to send the Old Trafford crowd into raptures. The strike won the BBC Goal of the Season, the third and final time Rooney claimed that award.

In 2012, he also won the Premier League Goal of the 20 Seasons prize for this remarkable hit. The Three Lions had a torrid time trying to contain a young Neymar in this game but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cancelled out Fred’s opening goal to set the stage for Rooney.

Joe Hart’s poor clearance gave Rooney the ideal opportunity to shoot from inside his own half, with his drilled strike from almost 60 yards bouncing once on its way into the open goal.

Rooney immediately started to justify the £26million United paid Everton for him in 2004 with a hat-trick on debut against Fenerbahçe but a ferocious volley against Newcastle was the highlight of his first season at Old Trafford. Rooney launched himself into a thunderous strike from 25 yards as a headed clearance fell towards him and the ball rocketed into the top corner.

Michael Owen flicked on a long ball and Rooney controlled on his chest before lashing a fierce shot into the roof of the net from 18 yards. Arguably Rooney’s most famous strike, a brilliant overhead kick and one of the greatest goals seen in a Manchester derby.

Shrugging off the attention of James Tompkins, he took aim and launched a half-volley that swerved and flew over the frantically backpedaling Adrian’s head into the West Ham net. Wayne Rooney announced his retirement on Friday morning as he now transitions into a managerial career, joining fellow England stars Frank Lampard (Chelsea) and Steven Gerrard (Celtic) as players to enter the coaching ranks after hanging up their boots.

As one of the sport's greatest players of his generation, Rooney's greatness shined brightly during his two seasons at D.C. United. Though Rooney's time in the nation's capital ended trophy-less with two straight exits out of the first round of the MLS Cup, he still produced some magical moments.

After leaving his hometown club, Everton, for new pastures across the pond, Rooney earned the trust of his teammates and former D.C. United coach Ben Olsen to wear the captain's armband just three matches into his MLS tenure. In his first game as D.C. United's captain, Rooney scored his first goal with a clinical finish in what was a special moment that galvanized the club's fan base.

Basically by the corner flag on this goal, Rooney probably accidentally sent an intended cross too far into the box -- not that he or any soccer player would ever admit that. You've probably seen this clip a thousand times before, but it's worth watching a million more to fondly remember the best moment Rooney ever produced in a D.C. United shirt.

Again against Orlando, Rooney tracked down an Orlando player who would've been through on goal had he not hustled back, made a well-timed slide tackle to gain possession and lofted a beautiful ball to the back post for former United striker Luciano Acosta to head home. There was plenty of excitement surrounding Rooney when he burst on to the scene as a 16-year-old with Everton, and he justified the hype with a stunning strike against Arsenal at Goodson Park.

Rooney brilliantly controlled a long ball outside the area, turned and then curled a shot past England goalkeeper David Seaman that went in off the underside of the bar.

Shrugging off the attention of James Tompkins, he took aim and launched a half-volley that swerved and flew over the frantically backpedaling Adrian’s head into the West Ham net. With incoming boss Sam Allardyce watching on from the stands at Goodson Park, Rooney scored from inside his own half in the 66th minute as he met Joe Hart's clearance inside the center circle and sent the ball straight in.

The win, which moved Everton up from 17th to 13th in the Premier League, was only their second in eight matches since David Unworthy stepped up from the under-23s to take caretaker charge following the sacking of Ronald Woman. Allardyce, sat alongside Everton's major shareholder Farad Moshing and chairman Bill Ken wright at the game, will surely have taken great encouragement from what he saw hours after the club had announced he was to finalize terms on becoming their new manager.

Rooney said of Allardyce: “Of course he'll be pleased, but for us as a team, as a club, it was important for us to show some pride. He's stepped in at a difficult time for the football club, he's a true Everton person.

“I'm delighted for him we've got this victory because it's an important win for the club but also for David Unworthy.'' Unworthy hailed Rooney's “wonder goal” and said the former England captain was “probably the only guy on the pitch” who could score such an effort.

He added: “The board have made a decision and like any manager he needs to be afforded time and patience and given the chance and the backing from the whole football club.
