Wayne Rooney is trending as he scored a magnificent goal for his American Major League Soccer (MLS) club, D.C. United.
The former Manchester United player scored the superb goal on Wednesday night in a 1-0 win against Orlando City.
Orlando City SC goalkeeper Brian Rowe was off the line and could only sprint back toward the net, seconds before, D.C. United forward Wayne Rooney, some 65 yards away behind the midfield line, had already noticed the opportunity and launched the ball, scoring DC first goal in the 10th minute.
Social media reacted to the amazing goal, see tweets below…
I was amazed by Rooney’s wonder goal from his own half. Some compared it to Dave Beckham but this was on another level. Not only was Wayne inside his own half, I heard he was in America when he hit the ball – that has to be thousands of miles at least. Goal of the century for me.
