Rooney found the net from distance in the 10th minute and that was enough to secure a 1-0 victory for his DC United team over Orlando City in last night’s MLS match.

It’s not the first memorable long-range strike of Rooney’s career after he scored in similar fashion in the Premier League for Man United against West Ham in March 2014 and for Everton against West Ham in November 2017.
