K. Ruud van Nistelrooy, Charlton 1 United 3, League, The Valley, 19.11.05
Rooney collects the ball inside his own half and barrels 50 yards into the box before conjuring an outrageous cross with the outside of his right foot. It pops up to Ruud, who takes the ball on his chest, pirouettes and thunders a volley into the top corner.

L. Paul Scholes, Villa 0 United 3, League, Villa Park, 23.12.06
A Ryan Giggs corner is headed high up and out of the box… and that’s where the good news stops for Villa, because Paul Scholes booms a terrific volley that thunders in off the underside of the crossbar.

M. Wayne Rooney, United 2 Portsmouth 1, FA Cup, OT, 27.01.07
A top first touch earns Wayne space 25 yards from goal, he advances menacingly and then fools everyone – not least David James in the Pompey goal – by executing a sublime chip into the top corner. A classic counter-attack.

N. Wayne Rooney, United 4 Bolton 1, League, OT, 17.03.07
A Bolton throw-in falls to Ronaldo inside the Reds' box before a neat piece of interplay with Rooney sends the Portuguese into enemy territory. With defenders backing off, Ronny slips the ball to his left, Wayne takes a touch and dinks the ball over the goalkeeper. Devastating.

O. Nani, United 4 Middlesbrough 1, League, OT, 27.10.07
With the game barely two minutes old, Nani skips past one defender, jinks inside another and unleashes a scorcher past Schwarzer from all of 30 yards. Pure power.
