Rooney stars as Man Utd close in on knockout stages

Wayne Rooney became Manchester United's record European
goalscorer as they beat Feyenoord to keep their Europa
League fate in their hands.

The Red Devils captain scored his 39th European goal for the
club when he clipped the ball over Brad Jones from Zlatan
Ibrahimovic's perfect through ball - with Feyenoord appealing
unsuccessfully for offside.

Rooney then set up Juan Mata to slide home the second.
The win was secured when former Liverpool keeper Jones
deflected Ibrahimovic's cross into his own net, and Jesse
Lingard curled in a fourth in injury time to make it Jose
Mourinho's biggest win as United boss.

A draw or win at Zorya Luhansk in the final Group A game on
Thursday, 8 December would take United into the last 32.
