Wayne Rooney has picked up our latest Goal of the Month award for his effort against Norwich City at the start of March.
In injury-time against the Canaries at Old Trafford, Rooney cut inside and unleashed a dipping drive from outside the box past goalkeeper Mark Bunn to seal a 4-0 win for United, after Shinji Kagawa’s earlier maiden hat-trick for the club.
The goal garnered 39% of fans’ votes on our seven official websites – English and its Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Spanish and French language versions.
Javier Hernandez’s looping header in the 2-2 FA Cup draw against Chelsea came second on 27%, with Kagawa’s third goal against Norwich, a neat dink following a fine team move, rounding off the top three (16%).
Kagawa’s second that afternoon, an impudent first-time finish from Rooney’s pass, was also nominated, along with a rocket by Charni Ekangamene and a smart shot by Sam Byrne for the Under-21s and Under-18s respectively.
