Wayne Rooney could not hide his delight after firing Manchester United to a 1-0 Champions League win over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

After a goalless first half, the England captain headed home in the 79th minute as United took a big step towards qualifying for the knockout phase of Europe’s elite club competition.

The win left United top of their group on seven points and one point ahead of PSV Eindhoven and Wolfsburg heading into the final two games.

And Rooney was clearly thrilled to produce the winner as he netted the Red Devils’ first goal in 404 minutes of football.

Rooney posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Good win tonight to go top of the group. Thanks to the fans for their brilliant support!”
