The Star who played for the first half against Gor Mahia of Kenya scored his first goal in Toffees colors in the 35 minutes of the game which ends with 2-1 against Gor Mahia.
Rooney scored through a long range, 35 meters outside Gor Mahia side.
This goal proved that the England National Team Captain is class above the rest.
It took only two minutes for Gor Mahia to equalize through Jacques Tuisenge who connected a well taken corner.
Both teams put pressure to each other but failed to score up to recess.
After the break, the English Premier League side changed the whole team by bringing in new faces.

Gor Mahia also responded by attacking Everton but there pressure was prevented by Gor defenders who were very alert.
