David Beckham’s half-way line goal against Wimbledon is a piece of Premier League folklore, and something we thought may never be repeated. But Wayne Rooney did his best to replicate the moment of magic with a simply stunning half-volley at West Ham.
Wazza bulldozed just into the Hammers half before releasing a shot that can only be described as a blockbuster. Okay, Adrian may have done better, but the spin on the ball deceived him and has to earn Rooney high praise. And just to make a little sweeter, D-Beck was in the stands!
Wayne Rooney just scored from 45 yards out for Man United, as David Beckham watched from the stands. #Flashback

Was the West Ham keeper playing the spin the broom game before that Rooney goal?

Don’t think there’s any point in a ‘Goal of the Month’ competition. Wayne Rooney has just scored it. Superb.
