Rooney's 200: Headers

Wayne Rooney has scored 22 headers for Manchester United but it’s still perhaps an underrated part of his goalscoring armoury.

While he’s not the tallest striker in world football, Rooney is a threat in the air thanks to his strength, prodigious leap and ability to either guide the ball or power it with his head.

Rooney netted his first header for United in his 120th appearance, against Arsenal on 21 January 2007, while his most recent came against Stoke on 20 October 2012.

Our video shows that maiden effort against the Gunners and five more of the double centurion’s best headers for the Reds, against Wigan (August 2009), Manchester City (January 2010), AC Milan (twice, February 2010) and Aston Villa (February 2010).
