Wayne Rooney notched his first MLS goal last night against Colorado Rapids in a 2-1 victory. The forward, who just recently signed for DC United, opened the scoring on 33 minutes, latching onto a through ball before slotting through the legs of ex-Manchester United team mate Tim Howard:
I don't think it's the first time he's bled in a game. He is a tough guy and I think that he will shake it off, Olsen said.
He has been fantastic in every aspect, in every way that we want him to be with this group - with his leadership and goal-scoring ability. Hopefully, it can continue to get better.
Despite the result, DC United remain bottom of the Eastern Conference in MLS, with 17 points after 18 games.
