Wayne Rooney reflects on his first FA Cup goal
Wayne Rooney says he is desperate to win the FA Cup after the Manchester United captain posted a photo of his first goal in the competition from 2005.
The Red Devils captain is expected to lead out his team-mates for their clash against League Two outfit Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium on Friday night.
Rooney scored his first FA Cup just over 10 years ago as United were 2-0 winners against Exeter City after the non-league side had remarkably forced a replay.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side went on to reach the FA Cup final, and although Rooney converted his spot-kick in the penalty shootout, Paul Scholes’ miss handed Arsenal the trophy.
However, the 29-year-old hasn’t given up hope of winning the only major trophy missing from his collection, taking to Facebook to issue a rallying cry.
Striker Rooney has scored eight goals in 17 appearances in all competitions for Van Gaal’s side this season.
