England international Wayne Rooney has scored a sensational strike in Manchester United’s friendly against AS Roma tonight, as posted online by #SportsVine.
The Manchester club are facing their second pre-season game of the summer, having destroyed LA Galaxy 7-0 in their opening game in Pasadena.
Louis van Gaal has arrived at the Old Trafford club to take charge this summer, having managed the Dutch national side at the World Cup. The Dutch manager led his nation to a third place finish in the competition, with the side not losing a single game in normal time or extra time in the competition.
They have been active thus far in the transfer market this summer, signing Luke Shaw from Southampton and also adding Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao.
The club will be hoping for significantly better displays and results this season, having struggled to a seventh place finish in the Premier League last season, their worst finish during the Premier League era. They will miss out on European football this season as a result.
