Everton has crushed West Ham United in the yesterday game with 4:0. And Wayne Rooney certainly was the man of the match. He scored two times in the first half and completed the first hat-trick for Toffees from inside his box. It was a spectacular scene, which has stunned new manager Sam Allardyce.
“It was one of the best goals I have ever scored”, told Rooney. “I hit it as well as I have ever hit a football. It was the first hat-trick for Everton and it was special. It was a perfect moment”, added 32-year-old.
The first one Rooney headed after Hart saved his penalty on 18’. The goal was a real frustration for West Ham’ keeper Jordan Pickford. However, it wasn’t the end. Jonjoe Kenny and Tom Davies made a good chance on the field and Rooney used it to score another gentle goal only ten minutes later.
After the break, Everton had to withstand continuous pressure, which was set by Diafra Sakho. Nevertheless, it couldn’t turn the situation for Londoners. When the ball was on the West Ham’ side without any defenders, the goalkeeper dived right into the rivals and knocked the ball. Unfortunately, it went to Rooney who immediately hit from inside his own half. The tribune was literally covered with delight and shouting after the ball touched the net.
Allardyce added after the game, “Wayne played wherever he wanted to. He was brilliant and controlled Middlefield. He should continue playing there and I won’t stop it”.
Next Everton will face Huddersfield Town at Goodison on Saturday. Don’t miss!

How am I going to explain to my children that Lukaku missed from there and Rooney scored from there? pic.twitter.com/ZIA2YvprD7
