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

We could have been watching a highlights reel from the 2006-07 season, when Wayne Rooney was barely into his twenties.

The former Manchester United star saved the day for D.C. United, who found themselves with no goalkeeper and facing certain defeat in the 95th minute.

"I saw our goalkeeper going up at 2-2 so I was a bit surprised", Rooney told Fox Sports in a post-match interview.

Will Johnson broke free and had the goal at his mercy but Rooney sprinted back and won a last-ditch tackle just by the half-way line to prevent a certain victor. So I managed to just try and anticipate and told them to stay in the box and thankfully I got the tackle and Luciano [Acosta] with a great header.

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.

The 32-year-old, who left boyhood club Everton for Major League Soccer over the summer, has already had an eventful time since moving to the United States, breaking his nose in the same game he scored his first goal for the club.
