Wayne Rooney Scores Astounding Overhead Kick To Win Manchester Derby (Video & GIF)

By Ollie Irish

Wayne Rooney scores a monumental winner against Man City. You can shut down the Premier League goal of the season competition now.

Rooney scores surprisingly few wonder goals – hmm, his debut goal for Everton v Arsenal, that screamer for United v Newcastle, and a chip against Portsmouth spring to mind. But this is his best yet.

    Good goal. Not that special though.

  4. Eddy says:

    Similar to dai, I was thinking about Man Utd before the game actually. I was thinking, I really don’t like Man U, but seriously they have to be respected.

    My goodness, Rooney is a monster, form is truly temporary but class is permanent. Congrats on a brilliant goal from an Arsenal fan!

  5. Riho says:

    I hoped that City will win , but ..

  6. Montesquieu says:

    United doesn’t deserve respect, it’s like saying Wal-Mart or Tesco deserves respect because they’re good at selling everything for less.

  7. bemand says:

    oh come on it’s wayne rooney, any goal he scores is considered “world class.” had another player scored this, like anderson or evans it’d just be a good goal and that’d be it. the wayne rooney factor blows everything he does out of proportion, a shyte goal becomes a great goal, but when he doesn’t score he becomes horrible. not a wazza fan, hes starting to become bigger then man u, like becks and look what happened there.

  8. Lorenzo says:

    “had another player scored this, like anderson or evans it’d just be a good goal and that’d be it”

    Simply, anderson or evans wouldn’t score this.

    @Lorenzo, you’re an idiot. I can name a few “mediocre” (for lack of a better word) players that have scored overhead kicks.

  11. bemand says:

    @lorenzo. i think you missed the whole point of my post.

    es la mama de los goles es un lloko

  13. bradford says:

    i hate rooney, and i’m always trying to tell people he’s overrated. and then he goes and does that.

    P.S.- COYI!

  14. Nard4Reynard says:

    Slowly but sure, ManU took Manchester City down. Rooney’s goal is really an uppercut for Manchester City. Great job! MU will be the champion this year! :)

  15. James says:

    These are the sorts of games I just wish and wish the other team would be better than they are. God I hate Man Utd but that goal wasn’t half bad.

  16. topo says:

    Considering the magnitude of the game, it was a world class strike. Be afraid…he’s back!

  17. Chris says:

    From a neutral – it’s too bad Silva couldn’t find the back of the net. He really deserved that win after playing the entire match like a master technician. Made everyone out on the pitch, even his team mates, look completely inferior. Where was Tevez, by the way?

  18. gilly says:

    tevez, whats the score, tevez tevez whats the score

  19. gilly says:

    @ bemand woteva, that was a world class strike and easy goal of the season so far, no point trying to better that

  20. puffdaddy says:

    His celebration was priceless haha he just let his arms out like it was out of a movie

  21. syndex says:

    goal of the season when rooney does it two seasons ago lescott dud it twice in two weeks and it was ignored.

  22. syndex says:

    actually just found the video the cahill one was much better

  23. Tony Low says:

    I like how Anderson and Chicharito celebrate like fans of ManU.

  24. Tinez says:

    well timed shin

  25. Yaaaaaarrrs says:

    A very good goal, but not exemplary. A main reason is it getting so much praise is because it was a winning goal in a very important derby match. If this same goal was scored it a 5-0 rout against lets say, West Ham, I don’t think people would be talking about it as much.

  26. CFC_Jay says:

    Cracking technique from wazza, but am i the only one who thought he shinned it a little bit? lol!!

  27. Adam FJ says:

    @ Jay – Yes, you can see it in the ‘reverse angle’, he clearly shins it. I would say more than a little bit too, 100% Shindala

  28. […] no spiel, just 10 superb ‘overhead kick’ goals to rival that of Wayne Rooney’s fantastic flying shinner against Man City t’other […]

  29. emmymu says:

    rooney’s goal was even better then berba’z

  30. hey says:

    He did shin it! Exaggeration because it’s a home player who made it.

  31. Asifiwe says:

    whether you hate rooney or man u that was classic,, give it any name, it was the best up now in the league,, not just because it was decisive but it was great

  32. mr right says:

    for all those people saying he shinned it.. thats the way its supposed to be done..thats the right technique..if you hit it with the foot it’ll go into the stands not the back of the net..
