    Liverpool bid for Keita rejected

    Ronald Koeman's side went on to win 2-1 in Tanzania, and Rooney, who played the full first half, was delighted to get off the mark.

    "To score for Everton again is a great feeling," he told EvertonTV . "It's something I've been thinking of for the last couple of weeks, once I knew [the move] was happening.

    "Thankfully, I've done it and that 45 minutes will only help. I was pleased with it. It's a good start but I think we have to improve still.

    "It's early days and we knew it would be a tough game in tough conditions but I thought we did well.

    "It's always important to win the game but I think the most important thing today was we all got a good 45 minutes under our belts.

    "Obviously there's things we can do better but the most important thing is getting the minutes under your belt."
