Late Rooney penalty rescues point for visitors

1 min read
A late penalty from Wayne Rooney rescued a point for Everton as they drew 1-1 with Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday. After a lacklustre first half, the second period saw much of the action and Anthony Knockaert put the hosts ahead in the 82nd minute to scenes of wild celebration. But a silly foul from Brighton captain Bruno – who elbowed Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the face during an Everton free-kick – saw the visitors awarded a 90th-minute penalty that Rooney converted. It moves both sides on to eight points following the draw, with Everton in 16th and Brighton in 14th with a superior goal difference.
