Wayne Rooney put his World Cup torment behind him to set Manchester United on their way to an impressive Community Shield 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Wembley.
Although Rooney could not get his name on the scoresheet against the Double winners, it was the striker who was so out of touch in South Africa that created United's opener with a brilliant cross to set up Antonio Valencia.
