'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rooney Didn't Even See His Goal!

Wayne Rooney revealed he did not expect his shot to hit the target at the goal which beat LUD Quito in the World Club Championship final today.

United's striker expertly finished the chance created by the excellent work of Carrick and Ronaldo and was named man of the match and player of the tournament after the game.

"I couldn`t really see whether it was going in or not when I hit it because it went through the defender`s legs," said Rooney.

"I was just waiting for it to reappear but when I saw it hit the back of the net I was delighted."

And of course he was keen to emphasise the fact which he confirmed with this goal:

'We're the best team in the world.'

'It's a great achievement for the team and something we're all really proud of.

'It's been a long road. To score the winning goal is a great feeling. Let's hope we can kick-on from this.'

Fantastic form from Wayne in this tournament: 3 goals and brilliant performances despite only playing 1 match and 18 minutes. He showed the determination to win that defied anyone who said this match didn't matter. We are now Champions of England, Europe and the World. To top it off, Liverpool only drew, which means we are only 7 points behind them with two games in hand (which I would expect us to win - Fulham and Wigan). The World Cup returned our goalscoring form and Rooney's started scoring again at just the right time (the only negative was Vidic's red card, and subsequent ban for Inter). If only Everton could do something against Chelsea, it could be the perfect weekend...
