Rooney Scores As Everton Defeats Stoke City 1-0

0 0

Wayne Rooney marked his top-flight return to Everton after 13 years by scoring the winner against Stoke with his 199th goal in the Premier League.

The 31-year-old, who left the club for Manchester United in 2004, found space in the area to head a Dominic Calvert-Lewin cross past Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland before the break.

It was the Toffees’ best move of the match – one Rooney was twice involved in before adding the finishing touch.

Calvert-Lewin also went close for the home side as Stoke struggled to break Everton down on an opening day at Goodison Park.

Xherdan Shaqiri’s long-range effort did force new Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford into a fine save in stoppage-time, with the 23-year-old leaping across his line to tip wide.
