WAYNE ROONEY’S brother John emulated his sibling with a stunning goal from his own half today.

The 29-year-old looped one in from miles away for Stockport during their 2-1 win at Rochdale in the FA Cup.

John is six years younger than older brother Wayne, 35, who made a habit of scoring from his own half during his decorated playing career.

And there’s clearly something in the Rooney family genes as John took a leaf out his brother’s book after just seven minutes.

The ball fell to the midfielder about ten yards inside his own half.

And having spotted Dale keeper Gavin Bazunu off his line, he let rip.

The right-footed effort did not even bounce as it sailed over Bazunu’s head and into the net.

Rooney’s eighth goal of the season set his team on the way to an excellent win which saw County through to the second round of the FA Cup.

Alex Reid doubled their lead just seven minutes later.

And although Matty Lund pulled one back on 22 minutes, Rooney’s side held on.


Once the footage surfaced online, fans were drooling over the peach of an effort.

Thomas wrote: “Gets better every time you see it.”

Arthur added: “Goal of the round from John Rooney and going to take some beating for goal of the competition.”

And another user simply said: “Must run in the family.”

Wayne scored three memorable long-distance goals during his career.

Both Premier League ones were against West Ham – one for Manchester United and one for Everton.

And he also did the same for DC United in the MLS against Orlando.
