The Dutchman substituted Anthony Martial and left Rooney on the pitch to the disbelieve of many red devils fans in old Trafford and those watching from all over the world, but the skipper repaid that faith with the only goal of the match. It was Wayne Rooney’s first goal in the UEFA Champions league proper this season after scoring three goals in the qualifying round.
