Wayne Rooney‘s record-breaking free-kick Saturday inspired praise from many of English football’s greats – and one inventive ad from personal sponsor Nike.

Nike also released special boots commemorating Rooney’s historic achievement:
Sir Bobby Charlton set the 249-goal benchmark for United in 1973.
