Wayne Rooney

West Ham Uni­ted 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 2, Boleyn Gro­und, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Mar­ch 22, 2014. Way­ne Roo­ney was sa­luted by Da­vid Moyes as he fou­nd the tar­get twice in Man­chester United´s 2-0 win over West Ham Uni­ted. But des­pite the vic­tory over The Irons, Moyes´s men were still sit­ting in a com­par­at­ively dis­ap­point­ing sev­enth place in the table.

Man­chester United´s re­mark­able roller­coast­er sea­son in the Bar­clays Pre­mier Lea­gue con­tin­ued wi­th a heavy 3-0 de­feat ag­ainst Liver­pool at Old Traf­ford, and then a con­vin­cing 2-0 tri­umph over West Ham Uni­ted at Boleyn Gro­und. Way­ne Roo­ney ma­naged to break the de­fens­ive dead­lock al­ready in the eight min­ute of the en­counter wi­th The Ham­mers when his mag­ni­fi­cent ha­lf-vol­ley from some fifty yards out sailed over An­dalus­i­an goal­keeper Ad­ri­an San Mi­guel del Castillo, also known as just Ad­ri­an, and in­to the back of the net. The Three Li­ons in­ter­na­tion­al then notched up his sec­ond goal of the even­ing wi­th a clo­se ran­ge ef­fort fol­low­ing thirty-three min­utes of in­tense ac­tion when the ball fell to the trig­ger happy sharp­shoot­er a mere eight yards out. Sam Allardyce´s men also had their mo­ments in the ga­me, but the East Lon­doners nev­er really took ad­vant­age of their chances to put the ball in­to the net.
