Man Utd ace Rooney delighted with win

Rooney scored both goals for Manchester United in the 2-1 win over Portsmouth.

He said: “I am delighted with the win and glad we do not have to face them in a replay. Portsmouth kept going until the end and it was a nervous last five minutes. We needed to show a good response from last week and I am thrilled we managed to get the victory to keep progressing in the FA Cup.”

On his two goals, he said: “In a way I am more pleased with the first one than the second as I need to score easier ones. I’m pleased it’s three in two games and I hope that will continue. I was looking for a pass but I couldn’t see one so I tried a chip and fortunately it went in.”
