Captain fantastic Wayne Rooney produces 96th-minute heroics to win MLS thriller

15 August 2018

Wayne Rooney recently made a move to Major Soccer League and yesterday, his splendid performance helped his team DC United win the game by 3-2.

Wayne Rooney has pulled off one of the greatest counter-attacking plays you will see in the game, let alone the MLS.

Wayne Rooney has delivered at the death for DC United.

But the former Manchester United and Everton star was just getting started.

His new side, DC United, were drawing 2-2 with Orlando City in the 96th minute of the match, with only seconds left on the clock.

Orlando, who were looking to break on a risky looking counter attack, were stopped in their tracks by a superb last-ditch sliding tackle from Rooney.

The 32-year-old chased back at top speed and won a last-ditch tackle just inside his own half line to prevent a certain victor.

He grabbed the headlines again in the 3-2 victory over Orlando City on Sunday night, despite the fact Luciano Acosta scored a hat-trick.

To add to the then 32-year-old's heroics, he then pinged a 60-yard cross-field ball to the back post.

This weekend's win over Orlando was the club's third win in six games since his arrival, bridging the gap to the rest of the Eastern Conference after being well adrift at the bottom of the standings just a few short weeks ago.
