Memphis Depay may be finding his footing in the Premier League, but he’s been downright dominant in the UEFA Champions League.

Wayne Rooney darted into the box to meet the pass before Brugge keeper Sinan Bolat could collect it. The goal from the Red Devils captain gave United a 1-0 halftime lead and 4-1 lead on aggregate in the UCL qualifying playoff.

He’d later add a second, with help from Ander Herrera. Here’s Rooney’s first¬†goal in 10 matches for United.
