Rooney took the corner that Nemanja Vidic scored from against Bayern Munich last night.
Instead, he could be seen celebrating with the fans.
Rooney took the corner kick that Nemanja Vidic headed in to give United the lead over their German rivals. But while the rest of the team celebrated, Rooney remained by his corner flag to celebrate with the Old Trafford faithful.
United failed to hold on to the lead and ended up drawing 1-1 with Bayern, but defied widespread criticism to hold their own against the European Champions.
Rooney and the rest of the squad will travel to Munich for the second-leg at the Allianz Arena next Wednesday.
The Englishman was later caught up in controversy, accused of going to ground too easily to aid Bastian Schweinsteiger's late sending off.
This, will remain a happier moment in a dismal season for the forward, who will continue to dream of another big result when he travels to Germany.
