He said the perfect line, he… chose the title himself, talking to Sky Sports right after Everton’s 1-0 win over Stoke City, in which he was the scorer.
To score in my first game in the Premier League back at Goodison, the winning goal, it doesn’t get much better
Wayne Rooney said, having netted his 199th Premier League goal on his… second first game for the Toffees, 13 years after leaving the club to become a legend at Manchester United.
Today a good Stoke team made it difficult but it’s important you win. We’ve got some tough fixtures coming up and it was important we got off to a good start and that will give us all confidence going into the next game
Rooney also said. The 31-year-old striker scored just before the end of the first half, in what was a game with few chances inside the boxes. As time passed, it was becoming obvious that a single goal would decide the winner, and Everton got it, picking up all three points.
To play for this football club again is a huge deal for me
Rooney added, looking determined to outdo himself to help Everton have their best season in years.
