Wayne Rooney became Manchester United’s all-time leading scorer in Europe after netting in the 4-0 victory over Feyenoord which keeps his side’s Europa League hopes alive.
Rooney’s 35th minute strike at Old Trafford — which was followed by him assisting Juan Mata for the second — took his tally for United in European competition up to 39 goals, surpassing Ruud van Nistelrooy’s previous best of 38, while he is now just one goal off Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time scoring record for United.
United, who would have been knocked out of the competition with a defeat, now head into next month’s final group game with Zorya Luhansk knowing a point will be enough to book their place in the round of 32.
It was three by the 75th minute with Ibrahimovic involved again, this time the Swede saw his effort from a tight angle carried over the line by Jones for an own goal. And Jesse Lingard added a fourth just before the final whistle.
