Wayne Rooney scores on his second Everton debut! Gets an ovation!


England Captain, Wayne Rooney made a goalscoring return to the Everton side he last played for 13 years ago when he netted a beauty in the clubs friendly game in Tanzania.

34 minutes into the game, Rooney opened the scoring as Everton played against Gor Mahia at the Tanzania National Stadium in a game that ended in a 2-1 win.

Ronald Koeman’s faith in Rooney who had been on his radar for quite some time had paid off immediately as the 32 year old was chosen upfront in a 433 central striker role in the first half.

Everton will be looking to bolster striking options ahead of the new season following the departure of Romelu Lukaku who joined Manchester United last week.
