Wayne Rooney became Manchester United's leading European scorer on Thursday as Jose Mourinho's side enhanced its chances of progressing in the Europa League by sinking Feyenoord 4-0.

Rooney struck in the 35th minute to claim his 39th European goal, one more than Ruud van Nistelrooy, and move to within one goal of Bobby Charlton's all-time club scoring record of 249.

Further goals by Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and a Brad Jones own goal completed a win that left United a point below Group A leader Fenerbahce ahead of its final game at Zorya Luhansk.
