Wayne Rooney Man Utd Debut

On September 28, 2004, an 18-year-old Wayne Rooney marked his Manchester United debut in style by scoring three goals in a 6-2 win over Fenerbahce. But can you remember who else played that night?

United fans had to be patient to see their new star signing, who had burst onto the scene at Everton and ripped it up at Euro 2004 a few months prior, but he was worth the wait.

Sir Alex Ferguson decided to give Rooney the nod for the first time in a Champions League group stage clash with Fenerbahce. There’s one name for free – what we’re asking is for you to try and name the rest of their starting XI that night.

There are some other iconic names in this teamsheet, but this is actually trickier than you might think – it’s safe to say there’s more than a couple of names that are unlikely to get into a United hall of fame.
