England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney ended his goal drought in stunning fashion with a hat-trick against Belgian side Club Brugge in the UEFA Champions League play-off second leg on Wednesday as Red Devils defeated them 4-0 and qualified for UEFA Champions League group stage thanks to an aggregate score of 7-1.

The England captain had gone 10 United games without netting but showed no signs of any lack of confidence in this comfortable play-off second-leg victory over an injury-plagued Brugge.

Rooney’s first arrived after 20 minutes following excellent work from Memphis Depay and he doubled his tally with an easy tap-in shortly after half-time.
Juan Mata teed him up to net his third just before the hour, as Rooney completed his first European hat-trick since his debut against Fenerbahce back in 2004.

Rooney was 878 minutes without a goal and finally ended his goal drought in sublime style.

Twitter was full of tweets after Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney’s hat-trick and here are some of the best Twitter reactions:
