Wayne Rooney is the second player in the premier league’s history to achieve the milestone of 200 goals.
Wayne Rooney has scored his 200th goal in the Premier League and his second in two best flight begins for Everton since his arrival to the club. The 31-year-old side-footed Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s cross into the net following 35 minutes of Everton’s game against Manchester City to put Ronald Koeman’s side into the lead.
Rooney got the opener in Monday’s 1-1 draw at Manchester City – his second goal in two league games. In spite of the fact that he didn’t end as the match-winning saint, Rooney could appreciate the experience he turned out to be quite recently the second player to achieve 200 Premier League goals.

Rooney’s turn a month ago back to the club he has upheld since his childhood and where he made his expert debut, was addressed by a few commentators who pondered whether he may have come up short on steam.
In the mediating years, Rooney has progressed toward becoming seemingly his nation’s highest-profile footballer and England’s record international goalscorer – while his 119 appearances for the Three Lions is more than whatever another outfield player has overseen.
