Wayne Rooney

Profile

At the age of 16 Wayne Rooney announced himself to the Premiership as a top prospect - hitting a stunning goal against Arsenal to earn a famous victory for Everton in the last minute.

Nicknamed "Roonaldo", he ended 2002 as BBC Young Sportsperson of the Year, a remarkable achievement for a player who had been unknown only a few months earlier. 2003 started even more spectacularly when he received his first call-up for England.

However, Toffees manager David Moyes has been keen to shield him from burn-out and has ensured that he has not been overused or overexposed in the media.

He became England's youngest-ever player when he came on at half-time against Australia, and his performance at Euro 2004 were exceptional. With Newcastle United bidding for Rooney in August 2004, Man Utd joined the chase and signed the Scouser on Tuesday 31st August (transfer deadline day) for a sum that could cost the Old Trafford club up to £30 million.
