Wayne Rooney’s Title-Winning Penalty Spot Selling For £1m+ On Ebay

Fancy snagging yourself the very square of Ewood Park turf that Wayne Rooney wrapped up Manchester United’s 19th league title from?

It just so happens that you’re in luck my friend, as Blackburn fan Eddie Maxwell has uprooted the very penalty spot from which Rooney hammered home that decisive spot-kick and flung the bugger on Ebay in the name of charity – and the good news is, at the time of writing, the hallowed piece of muddy sod will only set you back a mere £1,000,050.63…

The perfect piece of unique sporting memorabilia, if you also happen to be uber-rich and uber-mental.

Got a cool million to spare? Fancy a flutter? Then step this way.

    Looks like there were a lot of fake bids as its down under £200k now.

    So what about the shirt he scored in, the ball, the net, the keeper’s gloves, his boot… etc. Don’t see why a lump of soil that’s going to decay is so special.

    id be surprised if the turf fetched more than £10!!!! Can the turf be verified as genuine also? could just be a square of grass with a white spot painted on it from someones back garden!! hahahahaha!!
