Rooney: Draw Was Fair

  • 3 October 2007

Wayne Rooney confessed that Roma deserved a point for their performance at Old Trafford.

“I think Roma played really well tonight. We knew it was going to be more difficult than last season,” he told Sky Italia television.

“They played well and honestly the fair result was probably a draw, but we held on to the win.”

Rooney scored the winner with a precise angled drive in off the inside of the upright, his first goal of the season.

“I think I just had to take it as early as I could. You could see the defender coming across, so I had to see past him and the goalkeeper to the far post.”
