Hard work paying off for Wazza

Wayne Rooney made it 19 goals in 19 games with two goals in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over West Ham United and the striker was pleased with his performance.

“They were two great balls [from Antonio Valencia],” he told Sky Sports.

“Especially the first one, he [Valencia] put it right on my head. It was a great ball, I couldn't really miss.”

Rooney’s 26th and 27th goals of the season both came with his head which the England striker admitted was something he had been working on.

“I’ve scored a few this season,” he continued.

“I’ve been working on it over the last couple of years and now it’s paying off.”
