It was the first match between two Premier League sides to be be shown live on social media, with it being free-to-air on Facebook.
It was fitting Rooney’s night of celebration should come against Everton, the striker’s boyhood team.
Rooney rose to prominence at Goodison Park in 2002 before moving to the Red Devils in 2004 for a fee of £27m, where he has since gone on to make 597 appearances and score 262 goals.
All proceeds raised from the match will go to The Wayne Rooney Foundation’s four chosen charity partners – NSPCC, Claire House Children’s Hospice, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and the Manchester United Foundation.
