Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has finally ended his goal drought after scoring in the 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, Express reports.
The 30-year-old scored a header in the 79th minute to help his side pick up all three points as they are now on top of Group B with seven points.
His strike marked the clubs first goal in 404 minutes after United picked up three consecutive goalless draws in row.
Manager Louis van Gaal has also come out to praise his team’s attacking abilities after seeing a host of chances being wasted before their captain finally came to the rescue.
“It is a relief because you have seen an attacking Manchester United creating a lot of chances against a very good, organised team,” he said.
“It is always difficult to score goals and then we have to wait a long time.”
Apart from Rooney ending his and his team’s drought in front of goal, he also netted his 237th goal for the club to move up to joint-second with Denis Law on United’s all-time scoring list.
The Red Devils will face PSV Eindhoven in their next Champions League match as a win against the Dutch giants will ensure their qualification into the latter stages of the competition.
