Wayne Rooney Scores Again For Everton


Wayne Rooney scored his second preseason goal for Everton in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Genk.

Manchester United and England’s record goal scorer marked his first appearance back in an Everton shirt with a fine effort against Gor Mahia earlier this month and was on target again at the Luminus Arena.

He produced a neat first-time finish at the back post just before half-time following a cross from Sandro Ramirez and later took the captain’s armband when Leighton Baines left the pitch.

New £30 million goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made his first appearance for Everton, as did Sandro, and kept a clean sheet before being replaced by Maarten Stekelenburg, who conceded the equaliser to Ally Samatta.

Ronald Koeman’s Everton side are next in action against Ruzomberok in the Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday.
