Wayne Rooney came up with one of the all time classic goals in the Major League Soccer as he scored from with a moon shot blast from his own half to lift DC United to a 1-0 victory over Orlando City on Wednesday.
The former Manchester United player hammered a 68-yard strike over the head of Orlando goalkeeper Brian Rowe. He scored the goal in the 10th minute of the game.
Rooney received the ball off a deflected clearance and took a glance towards the Orlando goal. When he saw Rowe was out of his 18 yard box, Rooney launched a powerful kick that went over the head of the goalkeeper.
Rooney will be part of the league’s July All-Star exhibition game where he will join Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Josef Martinez.
The MLS All-Stars will face 10-time La Liga champions Atletico at Orlando City’s Exploria Stadium on July 31.
