With Bobby Charlton watching, Wayne Rooney matches his mark.

Manchester United is all over Reading at Old Trafford on Saturday, up 2-0 within 15 minutes of their FA Cup third round kickoff.

And Rooney scored his 249th United goal, doing his best Zlatan impression to chop an 8-yard chance into the Reading goal in the 7th minute.

The match is Rooney’s 543 for United, ninth all-time. Charlton is second with 758, while Ryan Giggs leads the way with 963. It’s hard to believe Rooney will catch either, but he’ll edge Charlton on goals soon.

Watch below, as our fake lip reading indicates Charlton says, “But that’s mine” (kidding).
