Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney (born October 24 1985) is a footballer who currently plays for Everton. In one of his first games for the club, in October 2002, he entered football folklore by scoring a sensational last-minute winner against the then League champions Arsenal, consigning them to their first league defeat for almost a year.

He has also figured prominently in recent England international matches, after having become the youngest ever player to play for England, in a friendly against Australia, in February 2003. He has more recently set a record as youngest to score for England.

Before turning 17 and becoming eligible for a professional contract, he was playing for a hundred pounds a week and living with his family in a public housing project.
