Wayne Rooney had soccer fans in awe with this beautiful 65-yard goal from beyond midfield

Former England football captain Wayne Rooney has wound back the clock, scoring a contender for Major League Soccer's goal of the season.

Wednesday night, he scored a long-range goal from deep behind his own half against Orlando City SC, catching goalkeeper Brian Rowe out of position and having a go from 65 yards at Audi Field.

With a quick look up, Rooney spotted Orlando goalkeeper Brian Rowe drifting a bit too far off his line and made a decision to let fly.

With only 10 minutes gone in the first half, an Orlando attack broke down and a deflected ball broke lose and landed at Rooney's feet.

The goal he scored against Orlando City, from well inside his own half, had Manchester United fans triggered on social media, slating the club for allowing him to leave.

Well it turns out Wayne Rooney still has plenty left in the tank.

It was far from the first moment of magic from Rooney since making the jump to MLS, and it may not even be his best.
