Scholes’ goal helps Man United beat Bolton 3-0

Paul Scholes scored his first goal since ending his short-lived

retirement to help Manchester United to a 3-0 Premier League win

over Bolton on Saturday.

In the second match of his comeback, Scholes turned in Wayne

Rooney’s cross-shot in the 45th minute for his first goal since

August 2010.

Danny Welbeck made it 2-0 in the 74th and Michael Carrick

completed the scoring with seven minutes remaining as United moved

level on points with leader Manchester City, which plays Wigan in

Monday’s match.

Rooney also had a first-half penalty saved by goalkeeper Adam

Bogdan.
