Wayne Rooney scored to level up with England and United legend Sir Bobby Charlton. Rooney now has 249 goals in all competitions at Manchester United
Charlton’s goals came from 758 appearances between 1956 and 1973, while Rooney’s have come from 543 after he joined the club from Everton in 2004.
“It’s a proud moment to do so at such a massive club like Manchester United,” Rooney told BT Sport 1. “I’m hugely honoured to be able to play for this football club but to be up there in terms of goals with Sir Bobby, it’s a really proud moment for me and hopefully I’ll be out there on my own soon. But I’ll enjoy today because it’s a real honour.”
Other goals from Martial and a brace from Rashford gave United a win at the front of their home fans. And so, the FA Cup match between Manchester United vs Reading ended 4-0.
