WAYNE ROONEY’S SENSATIONAL free-kick lifted DC United to victory over MLS champions Toronto on Wednesday.
Former Manchester United and England captain Rooney scored from a stunning set-piece as DC defeated Toronto 1-0 to extend their winning streak to four games on Wednesday.
Rooney curled a 35-yard free-kick past Alexander Bono in the 18th minute and that proved to be the difference at Audi Field in Washington.
The 32-year-old’s memorable effort – his 10th in 18 MLS appearances – further boosted DC’s play-off chances, with the capital club four points clear of Montreal Impact in the sixth and final post-season place in the Eastern Conference after 32 rounds.
