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

Roon Over The Moon

Wayne Rooney has finally announced he's ready to have a crack at Europe's greatest teams, and he's now relishing the prospect of a second leg at the San Siro.

The fantastic brace tells the tale on its own but it's even more enthralling how he always kept going, despite that he sometimes looked to be very lonely up front. His second strike would deserve a Champions League final but things, unfortunately, do not work this way.

'It was a great feeling,' Rooney told ITV. 'It was a difficult match but we kept going to the end and knew that if we could get a victory it would make it that little bit easier when we go to the away leg.

'One goal behind at half-time to a good Milan team, we knew it would be difficult to get the win and the manager said at half-time to keep pushing and we will get goals at the end and we managed to do that.

'It is a great boost for us, it has been a long season so far and to win like that after being 2-1 down and the Italians are known for being great defenders it is brilliant.'

Fergie himself mentioned, too: the most important thing was we kept playing at great speed in the second half. A pedestrian pace would have suited Milan better as Bayern had discovered on their own ground. That factor could be crucial in the second leg.

Of course, the contest might be settled now, had it not been for a brilliant move which ended fittingly, with a sublime piece of skill from Scholes to set up Rooney who informed us of his admiration of the veteran playmaker.

'I have seen him do that every day in training. He is brilliant and a joy to play with. He is a genius.'

We could not agree more, Wayne.

I'm happy for Rooney...he is starting to score regularly in the champs league, when it matters and against the big teams..not like scoring against besiktas or fenebache or prague or rosenborg, like Ruud used to do..Its an advantage for manutd, but eb very afraid, its not over yet. 2 away goals??
