The Wayne Rooney goal that cemented the victory for Manchester United over Manchester City is not only the best of his career, but one of the best of all time. The spectacular overhead kick into the back of the net has gone viral on YouTube and rightfully so as it is one of the most skillful goals you will ever see scored on a soccer pitch.
City goalkeeper Joe Hart stood motionless, not believing his own eyes when Rooney, with his back to the net struck the ball backwards right into the top corner. He was asked after if the goal was the best he had ever scored: “I think so, yeah. I saw it coming over and I thought why not? Nine times out of 10 they go into the stand.”
