The 32-year-old chased back at top speed and won a last-ditch tackle just inside his own half line to prevent a certain victor.

Rooney picked himself up and emerged with the ball, before launching a 50-yard diagonal pass onto the head of Luciano Acosta to nod home the victor and complete his hat-trick. "I normally go in the box for corners, that's why I stayed out because I tried to anticipate something like that happening".

"He was already there too far to tell him to go back".

The 32-year-old charged back to save his team with a slide tackle before carrying the ball forward and picking out a stunning 40-yard pass.

"Thankfully I got the tackle in, and Luciano with the great header", said Rooney.
