Dundee United manager Peter Houston hailed David Goodwillie's talent after the forward's "sublime" overhead kick helped keep their Scottish Cup defence alive.
Goodwillie netted United's first equaliser in a 2-2 quarter-final draw against Motherwell with an acrobatic effort just before half-time, which took Motherwell goalkeeper Darren Randolph and the rest of Tannadice by surprise.
The Scotland international netted from just outside the six-yard box after beating Shaun Hutchinson to Craig Conway's cross, instantly drawing comparisons with Wayne Rooney's effort in the recent Manchester derby.
Houston said: "He has come out with a sublime overhead kick. It was fantastic technique. Wayne Rooney took a lot of credit for that and Goodwillie has got to do the same.
"We were right behind it, it was a hopeful cross into the box, I'm thinking `what are you going to do, are you going to take it down?' All of a sudden I see him taking off.
"He did the exact same thing against Aberdeen on Monday night and hit the post. So he has got it in him, Motherwell should have known!"
