Mourinho on Rooney: 'He was great, but I want one more goal'

The United captain, who was making his 543rd appearance for the club, broke Charlton's England scoring record in October 2015 and has now scored 53 goals for his country.

United went on to defeat Reading 4-0, with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford (twice) scoring.

Always a player with half an eye on the opposition goalkeeper, Rooney had been threatening to score a long-range lob for some time before finally achieving the feat against West Ham United.

The second-tier side, managed by former United favourite Jaap Stam, arrived and left having had scant sniff of doubling their only victory - in January 1927 - over these opponents in the competition.

Rooney equalled the milestone after becoming United's top European goalscorer in November when he passed Ruud van Nistelrooy to reach 39 continental strikes after netting against Feyenoord.

"This club is a huge part of my life and I'm honored to be up there alongside Sir Bobby", said Rooney after the match.

"It's a proud moment", he said.

Defense leads the way as Texans clinch division
Green has missed the last four games due to a hamstring injury, and said he hopes to play Saturday against the Houston Texans. Added Savage: "The first half I was just missing some people, missing some reads here and there, and that's unacceptable".

"It's unbelievable because everybody knows who Sir Bobby [Charlton] is and what he means for the history of the club and English football and, for Wayne to score the same number of goals for Manchester United, is fantastic". Reading knew a goal would change the complexion of the game, but Stam's men struggled to find a way through United's defence.

The teenage striker tried the same route again only to this time blocked by the Royals keeper after Rooney failed with an attempt to clip home a record-breaking goal.

A turgid first half at Goodison Park was followed by an entertaining second as Leicester showed the mettle that made it English champion last season. "He's won many trophies and the thing that most impresses me is that he's been here for so long but the hunger and desire is still there".

"We started well and it was good for me to see that the players who don't play many games are in good physical shape". Even in the way we play, we like to dominate possession, and there's no reason why you can't go to Old Trafford and do that as well.
