John Rooney Emulates His Brother Wayne With An Own-Half Wonder Goal

John Rooney Emulates His Brother Wayne With An Own-Half Wonder Goal

The Rooney name is tied to many wonder goals through the years, with Wayne scoring from all areas of the pitch during his illustrious career.

However, this time it's his younger brother, John, who might hit the headlines for an unbelievable strike.

The midfielder, currently playing National League side Stockport County, scored from his own half against Rochdale on Saturday in the FA Cup first round.

With only seven minutes on the clock, the 29-year-old nicked the ball from the toes of a Rochdale midfielder before perfectly chipping it over the opposition goalkeeper to give his side the lead.

The strike looked eerily similar to when his brother Wayne netted a similar goal for DC United in MLS just last year.

In an exciting game, Alex Reid doubled Stockport's lead minutes later, before Rochdale's Matty Lund pulled one back to make it 2-1 at half-time.

John Rooney isn't averse to a goal, having scored 17 from midfield for Barrow last season in the National League - firing them to promotion in the Covid-19-affected campaign.

His career has taken a slightly different route to Wayne. Having also started in the Everton youth system, John moved on to Macclesfield Town at around the same time as Wayne was first breaking into the first team squad.

Since then he has played for nine clubs, inculding New York Red Bulls, Chester, and Guiseley.

His slightly more famous brother, Wayne,is currently having a very different Saturday. England's all-time top scorer is playing for Derby County in the Championship - and losing 1-0 to Barnsley at half-time.
