This day in 1985, Wayne Rooney was born in Croxteth, Liverpool (how cool is that!!! He must be one of Liverpool’s biggest exports since The Beatles!) and grew up an Everton supporter. Signed for them on schoolboy terms at the age of 10, and the rest is history! Here’s his career statistics as they stand now. Credit to Wiki .
