From the total votes cast by hundreds of thousands of supporters across the globe, Rooney’s goal got 26% of the vote. The goal scored for Arsenal by Dennis Bergkamp against Newcastle in 2002 got the second highest vote, 19% and Thierry Henry’s goal for Arsenal against Manchester United in 200 was third on 15%.

Speaking in a report, Rooney Said: "I grew up watching the Premier League so to be voted the best goal in the history of the Premier League is a great feeling.
"There's so many good goals in that shortlist, goals that I watched in my living room as a kid: Alan Shearer's goal, Paolo Di Canio's, Tony Yeboah's, David Beckham's.
"To be competing with them and winning is a great honour for me and something I'm very proud of. I'd like to say a big thank you to all the fans that voted for me."

Rooney has scored 26 premier league goals this season for his club and is 2 goals behind the current top scorer Robin Van persie.
