Wayne Rooney breaks Man Utd's goal scoring record

This was Rooney's 546th appearance for United since joining the club from Everton as an 18-year-old in 2004 and during that time he has established himself as England's most prolific marksman, with 53 goals from 119 caps so far, surpassing Charlton's mark of 49. His strike was of pure genius, a goal Italian freekick masters Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero anad Francesco Totti would have be extremely proud of.

"I would be lying to say that I'm not disappointed to have lost the record", the 1966 World Cup victor told United's official website.

Rooney's well-struck free-kick was small consolation for a performance in which United failed to make the most of the chances they created after Mata's own-goal.
