The best goal of Wayne Rooney’s career

Check out Wayne Rooney’s bicycle kick goal in the 2-1 win for Manchester United over Manchester City in this weekend’s derby. After the match Rooney said it was his first overhead kick in a professional match and the best goal of his career. Sir Alex Ferguson said it was the best goal he has seen at Old Trafford.

What makes this goal so special is it was the winning goal and came late in the derby game. Had the game been a blowout and or versus a smaller club it might not have had the same affect. This goal will be remembered for years to come. It certainly looks more and more impressive each time you watch it. It is simply amazing!!!

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
