Rooney: I was terrified of missing Anfield penalty

By Carl Markham

Wayne Rooney admitted he dare not miss the penalty which gave him his first Merseyside derby goal and his Everton side a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

Having barely had a chance for 76 minutes, Dejan Lovren's foul on Dominic Calvert-Lewin saw the Toffees awarded only their second spot-kick at their near-neighbours since 1937.

Rooney had been waiting since his debut in 2002 to score in a cross-city clash for his boyhood club and, having scored five times against Liverpool during his 13-year stint at Manchester United, there was no debate as to who would take it.

Asked where the goal ranked in his glittering career, Rooney said: "It's right up there. Lovren kicked the ball away so I was walking over to get it and I was just trying to compose myself.

"All I kept thinking was: You can't miss this penalty, you just can't!"
