Rooney suffers eye injury in Everton's win over Bournemouth

English striker, Wayne Rooney suffered a nasty eye injury, but was consoled as Everton came from behind to win Bournemouth 2-1 at the Goodison Park on Saturday.

It was during the first half that Simon Francis’ elbow caught the former Manchester United forward in the face.

Blood immediately began pouring from a cut around his left eye and required a lengthy medical attention.

Rooney was angry with referee Martin Atkinson for not punishing Francis and made his feelings known as he went off for treatment with blood pouring from the cut.

Joshua King gave Bournemouth the lead early in the second half with a low 20-yard finish.

But Oumar Niasse hammered the equaliser from a ball by fellow substitute Tom Davies on 77 minutes before hooking home the winner just 8 minutes to stoppage time.

Speaking concerning Rooney, Everton Boss, Ronald Koeman said after the game:

“We knew it would be difficult for the second half. It cost time in the first half but I had to change him. Hopefully he will be OK for the next game.”
