Soccer – Rooney thrilled to net first Everton hat-trick

Hat-trick hero Wayne Rooney hopes that Everton's 4-0 victory against West Ham United will kick-start their season. The former Manchester United star completed his three-goal haul with a strike from inside his own half and admitted afterwards that it had been one of the best goals of his career. Wednesday's win against the Hammers was David Unsworth's last game as caretaker manager because Sam Allardyce will be unveiled as permanent boss before Saturday's game against Huddersfield Town, which the Toffees are 8/13 with bet365 to win. Rooney, 6/4 to score at any time against the Terriers, said: "I don't think I've ever struck a football better in my life. To score my first hat-trick for Everton, I'm delighted. "For us as a team it was important to win, the last few weeks have been tough. We have been hurting so it was important to get a clean sheet first off which was long overdue."
