Watch: Wayne Rooney makes incredible play to help DC United win

Wayne Rooney

DC United might not be having the best season, but they sure had a memorable ending to Sunday night’s game.

DC United and Orlando City were in stoppage time tied at 2 and Orlando was a man down when Wayne Rooney made a spectacular play. Rooney chased down an opponent and stole the ball away with a tackle, then sent a pass nearly halfway across the field to Luciano Acosta, who headed in the winning goal.

As if the tackle and pass weren’t enough, keep in mind that Rooney also saved a goal because DC had an empty net because keeper David Ousted had moved up for a corner kick. That play stole away a potential loss and turned it into a win.

In addition to Rooney, Acosta was a big hero for DC as he scored all three goals.
