Rooney's first Premier League goal

Watch Wayne Rooney score his first ever Premier League goal exactly ten years ago, when his stunning strike gave Everton victory over Arsenal on 19 October 2002.

At the time it ended the Gunners' 30-match unbeaten run and ensured Rooney became the youngest goalscorer in Premier League history at just 16 years of age.

Since then he has become one of the most important English players of his generation, including receiving the captain's armband for his country against San Marino this month.
