Wayne Rooney produces 96th-minute heroics to win MLS thriller

With 96 minutes on the clock, Orlando looked set to snatch all three points at Audi Field when they launched a counter attack with DC goalkeeper David Ousted pushed forward for a corner leaving an unguarded net.

Yes, that's Rooney tracking back hard to make a goal-saving tackle with the score tied 2-2, as D.C. United's keeper had gone forward to press for a victor off a corner and was caught up the pitch.

The return of the Premier League may have dominated the footballing sphere over the weekend but one of the division's former icons made sure his name was in the headlines following an incredible assist for DC United in a last-gasp win over Orlando City.

‘If they have dollar, we have our Allah’: Erdogan
This is double the level the president imposed on a range of countries earlier this year, including European Union member states. On March 1 , Trump had announced global tariffs of 10 percent on all aluminum to the USA and 25 percent on all steel imports.

United remain rooted to the foot of the standings however with 21 points from 20 games.

Rooney, England and Manchester United's all-time record goalscorer, confirmed his move to MLS in June after a season with Everton in the Premier League.

Still, nobody was talking about Acosta after the goal - it was all about the determination and quality shown by Rooney.
