Rooney recently returned to his boyhood club after 13 years - and admitted he had been wearing Everton pyjamas throughout his record-breaking spell at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, jubilant Gor Mahia fans have declared that the appointed hour has come for Wayne Rooney and Everton teammates to bow down to the power of Mayienga (The Earthquake).

"Wayne Rooney made me support Manchester United and now I don't know what to do because he has gone back to Everton". Another positive for the Toffees is that numerous most impressive players who featured for the England Under-20 set-up who lifted the World Cup in South Korea last month with a 1-0 final win over Venezuela, are contracted Everton players.

English Premier League side Everton has arrived in Tanzania ahead of their pre-season friendly with Gor Mahia on Thursday July 12.

Rooney then gave the local supporters, and Everton fans back home, plenty to cheer when he controlled a pass from Ademola Lookman with his back to goal, turned and sent a right-foot shot sailing into the top left corner.

Earlier, the Toffees led by the legendary England national team captain Rooney was pictured departing the United Kingdom for Tanzania. Crowds flocked wherever Rooney went in the buildup to the game. Everton are visiting Tanzania as part of the club's appreciation for their historic title partnership deal with leading bookmakers SportPesa.
