P.L. 2001 2002 Everton Leeds United

3rd November 2002
Goodison Park,

Rooney's Second Goal in PL.

Wayne Rooney progressed through the Academy ranks and went from schoolboy to superstar in just 12 months. The Croxteth-born striker, weighed in with eight goals in as many games during the Blues' FA Youth Cup run in 2002 and was an unused substitute when Everton defeated Southampton 1-0 in April of that year, receiving a tremendous ovation from the Blues' fans as he warmed up that day - an indication of his high regard. He made his debut on the opening day of the 2002/03 campaign against Tottenham at Goodison, and then became Everton's youngest ever goalscorer when he netted against Wrexham in the Worthington Cup. 
 His first Premiership strike will never be forgotten - a dipping 25-yard shot against Arsenal at Goodison on October 19, 2002, five days before his 17th birthday! Wayne became the youngest-ever England international in February 2003 when he came on as a substitute against Australia at Upton Park. He became the youngest player to ever score for England with a goal against Macedonia in September 2003 at the tender age of 17 years and 317 days. In August 2004, Manchester United paid £30 million - a world record fee for a teenager, to secure Rooney's services at Old Trafford. He scored a hat-trick against Fenerbache on his debut in the Champions League and in 2007 ,Manchester United and Wayne won the Premiership title with him netting 23 times.
