People are loving Wayne Rooney's magic moment in the MLS

People are loving Wayne Rooney's magic moment in the MLS

With all 22 players in or on the edge of the Orlando penalty area, DC United were vulnerable to a counterattack.

Rooney's DC United were being held 2-2 by Orlando City at the Audi Field as the match entered the 96th minute.

And Rooney then does brilliantly to quickly turn this into an attack, dribbling forward and sending an incredible long-range ball into the Orlando box, where Luciano Acosta heads it home for the victor, his third goal of the match.

And while Everton fans were divided on Rooney's departure, you'd need a heart of stone not to commend him for this marvellous effort.

Check out Rooney's moment of brilliance below and the ecstatic scenes from the supporters due to that crucial victor. So far, he's played in six MLS matches overall, scoring one goal, adding three assists, and making some impressive midfield contributions.

It was a legendary play from a legendary player, and Rooney will look to bring more of these types of play to D.C. United - and to MLS as a whole.

DC have banked 10 points from a possible 18 since Rooney's arrival last month. It looks like he's one that will pay dividends soon enough, if he hasn't paid enough already.
